“Thank God for the California governor,” thought Wilroy Jackson as he stretched out on a chair in the back room of the largest sports clothing store on the ground floor plaza. He put his feet up on the desk, taking a drag on a joint. “Yeah, thank you governor and thank you Coronavirus.”
Two months ago, he had been caught lifting merchandise out of a high end department store in a part of the city where protestors were setting businesses on fire and he hit some mother and her child with his car when he tried to escape. It wasn’t his fault, though. If the cops hadn’t been chasing him, he would have been more careful.
Fortunately, bleeding heart Hollywood social justice warrior types had raised enough in criminal defense funds that Jackson was able to hire Lewis Phagas. Phagas was able to get the looting charges against Jackson dropped and all of the more serious homicide charges were reduced to involuntary manslaughter. Yeah, Jackson still had to do a little time, but that was better than doing life. But even that sentence was commuted when the governor of the great state of California released thousands of non-violent offenders back out into the streets for fear of spreading Covid-19. Jackson was loving life. Thank God for social justice warriors.
Jackson’s girlfriend was an assistant manager of this fine purveyor of high class athletic clothing and shoes and she had secreted him into the manager’s office shortly before closing time and had given him her access card. All he’d have to do is to chill out until about nine o’clock when the building was empty, then take the stairs to the first floor where the store’s stock room was the first one on the left. He’d have to be quick to get in. Janice should have left a cart for him there and all he’d have to do is load up the merch and get out of there. The only danger was that the security room was on the other end of the same floor. But, if the guard was actually awake and paying attention, Jackson would be out the back long before some dumb ass, low end, rent-a-cop could stop him.
Chaz was a bleach blonde young man working at the third floor debt collection company. He was relatively new, having only been hired six months ago, but he had already won two monthly cash awards for collecting the most money for two of the six months he’d worked for the Domestic Economic Management Solutions company, or DEMS for short. On his second month with the company, he recovered over $42,000 on dollars and on his fifth month, he had recovered nearly $53,000. Chaz decided to work a little late tonight, as the end of the month was only a week away and he was in the running to win the monthly cash award again from the DEMS. The only way to get ahead in the DEMS employ was to successfully redistribute that wealth, and Chaz was quickly proving that he represented the best that the DEMS had to offer. He was alone in the cubicle city which, during normal business hours, employed hundreds of debt collectors. Rosa and Rita, the young twin Latina cleaning crew girls, came into the large office lugging behind them vacuums and a cleaning cart. Chaz gave them a friendly wave and a big smile.
“Working late again tonight, Senior Chaz?” said Rosa or Rita, Chaz could never tell them apart.
“Of course, ladies,” he said. “Gotta’ make that money!”
He turned his attention back to the computer inside his cubicle, speaking into his headset. “Look, Mr. Wallace. You already told me that your business was set on fire during the peaceful protests and the bank is going to foreclose on your home, but that has nothing to do with me. Your first priority is to pay off your debts. How hard is that to understand?”
While MS-13 was one of the largest, if not the largest Hispanic drug cartels operating in Los Angeles, they were far from the only one. There were others, like the Los Zetas. Carlo hid just inside the stairwell on the second floor, waiting for Manuel to finish cleaning the offices in the law firm. It took Carlo a few weeks to figure it out, but somehow old, innocent, hard working Manuel was employed as a mule for MS-13, dropping off kilos of coke usually at the piers or dockside. Carlo didn’t know where old Manuel was getting his stuff, but he knew that if he could intercept Manuel and take his stuff before he made another drop, Carlo would make a name for himself with the Los Zetas. Carlo peeked around the corner of the stair well, watching Manuel pass the glass door towards the elevator. He’d give Manuel a few minutes to get to the parking garage, then Carlo would follow.
After a few minutes, Carlo opened the door and stepped into the hallway, looking towards the elevators to his right. Suddenly, a loud crash caused him to jerk his head to the left. A tall, pale, elderly white man wearing a tan suit was thrown through the glass doors of the law firm. His body flew across the hallway and slammed against the reinforced windows which overlooked the plaza. The body slumped down on the ground, but to Carlo’s horror the elderly man got to his knees, clutching a hole in his abdomen where his guts used to be. The man reached forwards toward Carlo with bloody hands and pleading eyes before slumping down, unmoving in a puddle of his own gore.
Carlo bit down on his fist, too shocked to move, when something emerged from the law offices. It regarded the dead Phagas lying on the hallway floor then suddenly looked up, noticing Carlo. Carlo gasped, and then turned, running towards the elevator doors. Hearing the thuds of heavy steps looming closely behind him, Carlo ignored the elevators and instead ran down the hallway, taking a quick right and running past the gynecologist office to a set of double doors on the left. Quickly scanning his access card, he threw open the glass doors and ran inside. Praying that running up the stairs instead of down would slow down his massive pursuer, he took the steps two at a time headed to the third floor. His heart sank when he heard the glass shatter behind him and the thudding of footsteps following him upwards.
Rounding a corner which gave him a split second to look down, Carlo screamed. Although the narrow stairwell was only just wide enough for the monstrosity to navigate, it was actually gaining on Carlo as it bounded up the stairs. Carlo scrambled up to the third floor landing, access card in hand and threw open the door. But before he could step through, a crushing weight came down on Carlo, splintering his spine and upper back and pulverizing his heart and lungs. Blood shot out of his mouth and eyes. Carlo’s body kept quivering, long after he had died.
“Rosa! Rita! Whichever one of you is making all that noise, would you please stop? I’m trying to have a convo here!”
The monstrosity turned to the direction of the noise. Sniffing the air, it stalked down a wide hallway towards an open gallery of hundreds of cubicles, completely forgetting the broken form of Carlo. Chaz was seated in one of the cubicles along a long wall made entirely of glass which faced the hallway. His back was to the entrance to the gallery from the hallway and he was talking loudly into his head set and animatedly waving his arms.
“Look, Miss Thomas,” he said sternly. “Again, I heard you that you lost your job due to the pandemic!” Chaz had given up on Mr. Wallace, the deadbeat who blamed his lack of good business skills on the peaceful protestors. Chaz thought it might have been better if Mr. Wallace had burned down along with his business.
“Yes, Miss Thomas,” continued Chaz. “I realize that you are living out of your car, but you have to put your priorities in perspective. If you don’t pay off this debt that you owe, the DEMS will have no choice but to pursue litigation. Look, Miss Thomas, here is my suggestion. You can sell your car, and use the money to quickly pay off your debt! Then with the money that you have left over, you can get your kids something nice to eat at a McDonald’s!”
Chaz was so close to taking the daily lead. Collecting debts was a highly competitive dog-eat-dog game and Chaz played to win. He just needed this bitch to bite. He’d intended this to be his last call of the night and his blood was up for this kill, so much so that Chaz didn’t notice the horrid thing creeping up slowly behind him. “Miss Thomas, I’m trying to put food in your children’s belly but all you’re saying is that you want to force the DEMS into suing you! Is that correct, Miss Thomas? Am I hearing that you want your kids to starve because your priorities are all jacked up?”
Miss Shaquina Thomas, mother of three children aged 2, 3, and 6, where living in their 2002 Mazda Hatchback on a ghetto corner of Kansas City, Missouri. She had been laid off from her job at the IHOP when the pandemic hit and was reduced to working odd jobs here and there. It barely fed the children and put gas in the car, but it was the best she could do for now. Then this person called from the debt collection agency. She tried to explain that she was doing the very best that she could, but the man just wouldn’t listen and she began to cry over the phone. Miss Shaquina Thomas suddenly heard what sounded like a shriek followed by a large crunching noise over the phone before the battery went dead.
Rosa and Rita had just about completed mopping half of the hardwood floors out in the hallway and were returning to the maintenance closet to dump the dirty water and refill their rolling mop buckets with fresh water and pine cleaner. As they passed the gallery of cubicles, they were met with a sight of blood and gore as something which should not exist was feasting on the annoying young white man who always made snide comments to them behind their backs. Either Rosa or Rita screamed, Chaz would never have known which, and the horror looked up. In two bounds it crashed into the glass wall which divided the gallery from the hallway, but the reinforced glass held. Rosa and Rita abandoned their mop buckets and raced down the hallway as the monstrosity launched itself at the cracked glass again.
Turning right at the end of the hallway, Rosa and Rita screamed as they saw the smashed shell of what was left of their co-worker Carlo blocking the stairway going down. They screamed again as they heard the glass partition behind them shatter, followed by thudding feet following close behind. Running halfway down the hallway, Rita stopped at the elevators, frantically pressing the down button. The monstrosity turned the corner just as the elevator doors opened.
Rita pushed Rosa inside the elevator then jumped in herself just as the black monstrosity leapt. Rita was screaming, frantically pushing the ‘door close’ button, but the doors were slow to respond as the thing crouched outside and made to burst into the cramped elevator space. Suddenly, Rosa and Rita each pulled out a small .380 handgun from holsters which were strapped around their ankles underneath their grey work pants and began firing at the horror just outside the doors. As the doors finally started to close, and the elevator began to descend, the twin Mexican cleaning girls yelled at their tormentor, “Los Zetas, bitches!”
Though confused at what had just occurred, as it was not used to prey escaping, the monstrosity sniffed the air around the elevator doors then turned to the stairwell. Once again stomping on poor Carlo’s body as it passed, the unearthly hunter bounded down the steps, eager to catch up to its prey.
Wilroy Jackson checked his watch and, seeing that it was past 9 o’clock, knew that it was time to get the show on the road. Using the pass card that his girlfriend gave him, he opened the door to the back room which led to the private stairs up to the first floor. Once there, he peaked out the window of the door to make sure that the coast was clear. Then he looked up to the ceiling and spotted the surveillance camera. Jackson had dressed all in white. White sweats. White hoodie. White sneakers. White gloves. When he saw that the coast was clear, he put on a white mask and pulled the hoodie over his head. This wasn’t Jackson’s first rodeo, and he knew that it was difficult to identify suspects who dressed head to foot in white, especially with the low resolution camera’s which most security companies used.
In less than three seconds, Jackson was out the stairwell door, turned right, swiped the access card and was inside the treasure room that was storage room of the sporting goods store. As promised, Jessica had left a push cart for him just inside the door which he immediately began to stack with boxes of Air Jordans, Nike Air and Adidas sneakers, each pair of sneakers costing several thousand dollars each. In less than a minute, Jackson had about twenty pairs of sneakers stuffed into the sturdy plastic cart and soon he burst out of the storage room.
Pushing the cart in front of him, Jackson turned left and raced down the hallway. If the security guard was on his game, Jackson figured that he had a one minute head start on the rent-a-cop. At the end of the corridor, he pushed the cart to the right and continued down the adjoining corner running past the maintenance closet, the water meter regulator closet, an electrical room, and another store stock room. He just had to get past the break room and the stairs on the right and reach the service door at the end of the corridor on the left which led to the parking garage.
Once outside, all he’d have to do is take an immediate right and squeeze himself and the cart between a retaining wall and a concrete pillar and push out from behind the bushes surrounding the first level garage area which then led to the side walk with Flower Street on his right. Just up the street, Jessica had parked the van which they had stolen to make their escape south to get on the Christopher Columbus Transcontinental Highway and freedom. Jackson had just passed the break room. The door to the parking garage was just twenty feet to his left when the stairwell doors to his right exploded outwards. Jackson was thrown against the wall opposite along with about $100,000 dollars worth of high end sneakers. He slumped to the ground and, before he could recover from the shock, felt an incredible pain below his waist, accompanied by a loud crunching sound. Confused, Jackson turned over and pulled himself as far along the ground as his arms could take him, wondering why his legs weren’t working. He died not realizing the entire lower half of his body was missing.
The thing bowed its head, nudging the corpse and sniffing. Suddenly, lifting its head, it froze. It took a deep breath then jerked around and raced down in the direction that Jackson had come from. The horror turned the corner and stopped as it began to stalk the corridor past the break room to its left. Near the end of the corridor, the thing saw a door that was propped open by a sliding chair.
“What?” Bradford awoke with a start, momentarily confused as his world was covered by a suffocating filter of haze grey. He reached up and pulled Schmidt’s newspaper away from his face as he stood up abruptly. He looked at the clock on the wall, showing that it was past 9 o’clock. He’d been asleep for over an hour. He cursed, trying to calm himself down. What could have happened in an hour? Bradford sat back down to view the monitors and was horrified at what he saw.
Monitor 19 showed a man’s ripped corpse bloodying the entrance to the second floor parking garage. Monitor 26 showed the disemboweled body of a thin, older man wearing a tan suit sprawled out on the main hallway of the second floor. Monitor 41 showed someone that looked like one of the cleaning crew guys that Bradford saw earlier, crushed and mangled in the stairwell on the third floor, while what looked to be the remains of one of the office workers was lying in the debt collections gallery on Monitor 42.
Bradford stared unbelieving, throat dry, and eyes wide as he continued to scan the monitors. He knew that he had to call for help, but what would he say? His fingers were too frozen to move, anyway. He scanned the first floor monitors, the floor he was on, and saw two young women dressed in cleaning crew uniforms, running out of the parking garage, both pointing handguns behind then as they ran. Panning to monitor 42, Bradford gulped dryly as he saw the gory half eaten body of a young man lying in the hallway surrounded by piles of bloody sneakers.
Wait, that was just around the corner! Oh my God. That means that…
A hot breath enveloped Bradford from behind, followed by the stench of blood and uncooked flesh. Bradford turned on his chair and came face to face with a terrifying beast of nightmares. The thing stood over him, with a mass like that of a bull, only much larger. It stood on four legs, with its muscular front legs standing seven feet high at the muscular shoulders and ending in massive paws at least a foot and a half across. Its shoulders were as wide as its legs, at least seven feet across and it supported a head that seemed almost too big for the rest of its body. The head resembled that of a bulldog, but four feet wide, with a flat snout and a wide nose, but with an oversized mouth that extended as if on unhinged jaws that revealed dagger-like teeth about three inches long. It had two massive horns which protruded from its temples like a bull and they hung over wide spaced eyes which glowed a fiery deep red.
The body tapered towards the rear and ended at a long, muscular tail. The tail itself ended in a spike which seemed as strong as steel which scraped, sparked and gouged as it waved around the room, randomly smacking into objects and the ground.
Bradford leaned so far back in his seat that it almost fell over. Resting his right arm behind him on the desk to steady himself, Bradford raised his left hand up protectively across his face…
… and smacked the monstrous black beast across its fanged muzzle.
The beast yelped in surprise then turned, fleeing towards the far corner of the room with its tail between its legs. Reaching the corner, the beast turned facing Bradford and flopped down on the floor, plopping its massive horned head down and covering it with both of its massive front legs. Its flaming red eyes peered out from underneath its paws, whimpering pitifully.
“Muffins!” yelled Bradford, standing up and pointing an accusing finger at the hellish beast. “What did you do?” The beast yelped again and covered its eyes as Bradford stormed over to it. The beast kicked its rear legs, trying to back its rear end further into the corner, as if trying to make itself as small and inconspicuous as possible. Still hiding its head under its paws, the beast shivered as it panted and licked its mouth.
Bradford stared down at his poor little friend hunkered in the corner, all shaking and confused. He tried to be angry, but how could he be angry at the little girl? She was just a pup, for goodness sakes, and hellhounds are known to be especially hungry when they are growing pups. Bradford thought back to the cross country journey which eventually led him here to Los Angeles. He had picked up his pale blue, windowless panel van from New Jersey from where he began his drive to his grandparent’s farm in Ohio. It had cost him a pretty penny to ship it from Scotland, and he had managed to get a flat tire somewhere in Pennsylvania in the middle of the night. While he was changing to the spare, Muffins somehow got out of the van and ended up in a restricted US Army training area where the military were conducting some kind of night time land navigation for Cavalry Scout trainees. Fortunately, Bradford was able to attract Muffins back to the van before she ate one of the soldiers, although the local papers did print a short blurb about one of the Army scout trainees being tracked by a Bigfoot. A Bigfoot? Really? Though Muffins had been known to get up on her hind legs to sniff around, no one could mistake her for a Bigfoot. Bradford laughed when he read the story at a local garage where he got his tire replaced. If Muffins really wanted to eat that soldier, she would have found him. What a big mess that would have been!
Once in Ohio, Bradford stayed for about a year with his grandfather and grandmother on their farm in Jefferson. It was one of those communities where most of your neighbors were farmers and homesteads were separated by vast tracks of rolling foothills. Bradford’s grandparents owned a large enough farm and had an expansive enough plot of land in their rural and quaint farming community that a neighbor missing an occasional chicken of goat or hunting dog didn’t raise much of a concern. Muffins was practically just a newborn back then and she only stood as tall as a great dane. Plus, her coat was still a pale grey with streaks of darker grey along her flanks, instead of the pitch black fur that it is today.
It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, when the remains of the runaway Smith girl was found on the outskirts of his grandparent’s property that they got suspicious. The Smith girl went to the Jefferson Area High School and her parents had grounded her when they found out that she was dating the Schuman boy. She ran away two weeks ago and her bloodied clothing and shoes was all that were found on a lonely stretch of road which ran parallel to the eastern boundary of grandpa’s land which led to Mill Creek. Soon after the police investigators left, Bradford’s grandpa began asking questions which Bradford had no good answers for. Why haven’t they seen Scooter, their pet basset hound, for the past week? Why were cows and pigs going missing at their neighbor Winslett’s farm? Most of all, after only a year of living on the farm in, why was Bradford’s dog so big that it was now a full two heads taller than Molasses, grandpa’s Ohio State Fair Blue Ribbon award winning giant steer? And what were those two pointy things growing out of Muffin’s forehead, anyway?
Bradford thought he was doing his grandparent’s a favor by releasing Muffin at night to hunt beyond the boundaries of their farmland, but apparently that would not be a viable solution any more. That night, Bradford went to the ATM in town and cleared out his bank account. He put his clothes in an army surplus duffle bag, before whistling for Muffins and stuffing her in the back of his old but trusty windowless van. Obediently, she climbed in, the van’s rear shocks squeaking in protest. Seeing as Muffins barely had the shoulder room to move, Bradford resolved that, when he could afford it, he’d purchase a bigger van, perhaps even a bus.
They drove south for the rest of the night across the state. After crossing the Ohio border, they stopped in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, where Bradford got a cheap motel room on the outskirts of the city next to a truck stop. The taste of the skinny, crack addicted prostitute that Bradford picked up at the truck stop didn’t agree with Muffins, and she spit out the body parts, licking her butt to get rid of the poisoned taste. Muffins gave Bradford an annoyed look, but he just held up his hands and shrugged. They left Pittsburg right before evening and continued driving south, and the unfortunate residents of a mobile home located on a lonely stretch of land in the mountains satisfied Muffins for a while as they crossed into West Virginia.
They had travelled south through Skyline Drive and the Shenandoah Valley where Bradford allowed Muffins to get out and stretch her legs. Only a lone camper went missing that weekend who probably wouldn’t be found for a long time after Bradford and Muffins had left West Virginia. Westwards they drove, through Kentucky, southern Illinois, and Missouri, Bradford avoiding as many of the major populated towns and cities as he could. In Kansas, Muffins managed to wrangle down a heifer on a lonely field in the middle of the night. She didn’t eat again until Utah, when early one morning Bradford happened to spy a portly, middle aged fisherman pushing a small boat out into the Provo River for a little pre-dawn fishing.
That was, what? Seven days ago?
Bradford put his palm up to his face, kicking himself.
“Oh, Muffins. I’m sorry! I didn’t realize that it had been so long since you had last eaten. No wonder you were so hungry tonight!” Muffins tilted her head, staring at Bradford and whimpering.
“Come on, girl, let’s get out of here. But first,” Bradford walked to the black table, ejecting all of the DVR’s which had been recording the day’s events. Muffins eyed him curiously, wondering if she was still in trouble.
“Here girl,” said Bradford, tossing the DVR’s at the hellhound. Muffins leaped up, easily catching the discs in her mouth. She chomped down on them as if they were crunchy doggy treats, then, with a confused look on her face, spit the broken and chewed plastic pieces out and began licking her butt. Those tasteless crunchy treats weren’t yummy at all. She looked at Bradford, confused.
Bradford picked up the newspaper he was reading earlier before he dozed off. In bold black letters, the headlines of the Los Angeles Times blazed a story about how rioters and looters in Portland, Oregon, were being snatched up by men wearing uniforms and badges and being dragged into unmarked vans. Bradford smiled down at his security guard uniform and badge.
“Well,” he thought to himself. “Here’s a bunch of folks that no one will miss.”
“Come on girl,” said Bradford snapping his fingers and whistling. “Do you want to go on a road trip? Do you want to go to Portland? Come on, girl!”
Muffins jumped up and down excitedly, happy that all seemed to have been forgiven. Her mouth flopped open and her tongue wagged as slobber and spittle flew everywhere. The heavy thuds of her excited bouncing knocked monitors off the walls and toppled computers on to the floor, while her horns accidently dug huge gouges into the walls. Bradford laughed, grabbing Muffins by her scruff and hugging her, saying, “Who’s a good girl? Who’s a good girl?”

2020.05.05 17:57 Mel0n_Collie [OC] What if every world cup team had the same population? - Group G

Afternoon all, welcome back to the series that Gary Neville described as ‘How did you get this number, no I don’t know what you’re on about, piss off’. So far I’ve brought to life the teams of 24 hypothetical regions, that’s an entire Euro 2020’s worth! hmm that gives me an idea...
Before I begin separating the counties of Estonia, let’s stay focused and remind ourselves of how we got this far.
Group A, Group B, Group C, Group D, Group E, Group F,
Today’s post details the squads of the tournament’s penultimate group. Whilst this pool of players isn’t the greatest, they will be playing in front of the most participant sets of fans. Mexican waves meet Vuvuzelas in the battle for top spot while the other two’s wavin flags will look like this.
Southern Africa
South Africa, Lesotho, Eswantini, Mauritius, Reuinion, Comoros, Seychelles, Madagascar, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Angola, Tanzania
Population (millions): 255.34
The part of the world that brought us the only African world cup to date (and some other less wholesome moments in history), this southern hemispheric subcontinent has underachieved in modern memory.
The region is a mix of engrossed and apathetic when it comes to footballing subscription in the public consciousness, with four of the top seven African GDP’s per capita, their resources should theoretically be better than anyones. Just four World Cup qualifications (one of those by default) makes this the second least punctual region of the continent.
Lusophone’s Angola are the exception to an otherwise South African sweep of appearances. The ‘Giant sable antelopes’ (I’m sure it sounds better in portuguese) shocked the CAF by toppling Nigeria by the narrowest of margins to reach the 2006 finals; the nation’s top scorer and Barbie Girl singing eurodance group Akwá was the protagonist in a 1-0 win against the Super Eagles, this retrospectively acted as a tie-breaker when David & Goliath finished with the same points in their qualifying group. Their time in Germany was short yet respectable, conceding just two goals in three games and almost holding their colonisers Portugal to a bore draw, revenge is sweet.
A rugby nation by trade, South Africa were crowned World Cup champions just last year, unfortunately for soccer fans they have flattered to deceive in the world’s most beloved game. A ‘golden generation’ in 2002 featured the coloured careers of Steven Pienaar, Benni McCarthy, Lucas Radebe and Quinton Fortune; failing to escape an easy group, a huge opportunity missed. 18 years on Bafana Bafana’s only big names are of a literal sense.
Contrary to what I would have guessed, South Africa is not the regions most populous nation; Tanzania’s 56 million inhabitants puts them level with England, and the nation seem to identify as footyholics as much as their historic oppressors, unfortunately they haven’t got their money's worth for their sporting subscription.
The tiny island of reunion has produced the likes of Dimitri Payet and Laurent Robert, but since still being a French territory, anyone worth their salt gets a plane to Paris.
Botswana fail to feature in the squad, but with top clubs called ‘Meat Commision’ and ‘Miscellaneous’, it might be safe to say the nation isn’t taking the game as seriously as others.

On paper the team shouldn’t need to rely on talismanic powers as the middling quality runs true throughout this team. Aston Villa surely have a scout in this part of the world as they are blessed with the services of key players Marvellous Nakamba and Mbwana Samatta.
Samatta became the Premier League’s first Tanzanian in January and will hopefully have a chance to add to his three appearances sooner rather than later. The imposing frontman scored 23 goals in the Belgian league in 2018-19 which makes him almost over qualified to lead the line in this XI.
Patson Daka was 13 and playing for locals Nchanga Rangers when Zambia sensationally shocked the world to lift the 2012 AFCON; the goldenboy of a generation determined to sequel the Copper Bullets’ success. The speedy Salzburg striker already has 24 caps for his country, time will tell if he is to follow Haaland and Minamino out of Austria to a European giant.
Mononymous Angolan Bastos will command the defence as best he can. Although recently struggling to make the squad, Bastos has served Lazio well with his protective prowess.
A plethora of pacey playmakers completes the assembly that will most likely finish runners up in this group. An exit in the round of 16 is on the cards as by process of elimination lots of you have already worked out Group H’s heavyweights are North & Central Europe.
West India
3 Indian States (Maharashtra, Gujurat, Madhya Pradesh)
Population (millions)
All the way back to the simpler time of Group A I hastily declared Uttar Pradesh as the worst region in the world, I’d like to publicly apologize for that remark as it’s become clear to me that West India is the bottom of a very deep barrell.
The region that provides the setting for Slumdog Millionaire has plenty to answer for as finding 22 players in this part of the world was harder than a where's wally of Manish market.

With 8 caps for the national team, Rahul Bheke is made to look like prime Cafu alongside his defensive compatriots. The Bengaluru full back plays a leading role in a one-star Bollywood show.
Aniket Jadnav is maybe the one to keep an eye on, the wide forward failed trials at Blackburn late last year, but the fact that they even asked him makes this teenage talent the side’s crappy Mbappe.
A Bombay mix of unknowns will be thankful they haven’t drawn against the real heavyweights of the competition, or they could be on the end of a cricket score.

The big wall will have to wait as this side leaves rednecks turning in their trailers. The region has fathered two point three tournaments with one on the way, but the main feature of this team always seems to leave the party early when it’s not at their house.
Mexico have been excruciatingly expelled in the second round an eye-watering SEVEN times running, the sombrero wearing soccer obsessed Senior’s are so frequently the bridesmaid it’s no exaggeration to call them football’s spinsters.
The US’s largest state, Texas, is the birthplace of one of America’s greatest players and worst rappers, Clint Dempsey. His impressive club career was an MLS sandwich with a London filling, the posterboy of a Fulham team that miraculously reached the Europa league final. Romantically tied with fellow yank legend Landon Donovan, Dempsey retired joint top scorer for USMNT, including four goals in three seperate world cups.
Mexican legends of the game include Hugo Sanchez, who scored over 200 goals for Real Madrid, and Barcelona treble winner Rafael Marquez who incredibly played 19 games across five World Cups, considering they never manage more than four, that’s almost as good as it gets.
Today El Tri are seemingly at the beginning of a promising Mexican generation that coincides with some notable late bloomers.

One of the more mundane concoctions, it’s plain to see that Johnathan Brooks is the only ‘American’ to dare cross the border. The centre back scored a winner against Ghana in 2014 avenging the defeat of 2010.
After struggling badly at Atleti and then Benfica, it’s an unlikely story that aged 27 Raul signed for Wolves and has since become one of the Premier Leagues most feared strikers. The nation is hoping to harness whatever time he’ll be able to stay at this level, having scored five goals in a winning Gold Cup campaign.
Eredivisie fans will be familiar with Guardado and Alvarez, the bookends of a variety of age groups in the middle of the park.
‘Chucky’ Lozano is the posterboy, the Napoli winger scored the only goal in an historic victory over 2014 champions Germany. At just 24, it shouldn’t be of too much concern that he is competing to become a regular amongst fierce Neopolitan competition.
As usual, perhaps North-America’s best bet for success. They should win this group, but with the second round curse yet to be broken, maybe another John Brooks goal is needed to make the quarters.

Ex-Celtic and Charlton midfielder Zheng Zhi has 108 national caps and counting, still wearing the arm-band at 39 years old. An industrious and efficient playstyle combined with terrific passing range lends itself to still being able to compete at such a late age, although he will require the leg work of fellow 30-somethings Wu Xi and Chi Zhonguo if moves can be made.
Born in London, Nico Yennaris or ‘Li Ke’ was the first ever naturalised Chinese player, the former Arsenal youth and Brentford stalwart is hoping to become a trailblazer to the development of Asian football.
It isn’t an absolute certainty that this team will come third, but beating Southern Africa will be key, in a group of subjectively low quality, China’s best team is maybe their only hope.
Emotional times as tomorrow brings the final group, by this point it should be obvious who’s left.
See you all in the comments to discover what I’ve got wrong today (I will comb through the whole thing with your suggestions once this is done).

2020.02.28 20:41 binamarie Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois to sell ALL camp properties

The Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois Council made a surprise announcement yesterday that they've decided to sell ALL our camp properties. They say they will put the 3.4 million they get into a fund that will provide $200,000 per year for "other activities."
My kids are mainly in Girl Scouts because they LOVE camping. I can't imagine continuing with Girl Scouts without the opportunity to camp. Does anyone else have any experience with something like this? Is the national organization really ok with councils disposing of all their camp properties?

Background and Trail Info: I had plans to be in Denver for a wedding and couldn’t pass up the opportunity for hiking with better views than I can get in the second flattest state in the Union, Illinois. I’m a novice–this was only my second trip–with zero frame of reference for how I’d handle altitude and I was rehabbing a leg injury so I wanted to keep the miles and elevation gain low. With some research and a little feedback from y’all I settled on The Lost Creek Wilderness which is frequently touted as a beginner friendly, moderate use area showcasing a variety of eco-systems. There are two commonly recommended loops in this area both originating from the Goose Creek Trailhead–one a 35 miler (Lost Creek Long Loop on map) that traverses the ridge between Bison and McCurdy Peaks and a 22 miler (Lost Creek Short Loop) that bypasses the peaks in favor of a trail through Refrigerator Gulch. I wanted to see both areas and the approx. 7200 elevation gain of the longer loop seemed overly ambitious for me, so I opted to do the loop Shmooli123 describes in the Post Trip Musings of his trip report. which comes in at 28 miles and ~5400 ft of elevation gain.
The dog and I drove out, arriving in Denver on Saturday. It was uneventful except to say that I realized how starved I was for interesting geography when I found myself staring enviously at the landscapes of Iowa and Nebraska. The planning and prep for my backpacking trip had been so much at the forefront of my mind the previous weeks that the whole actually getting there and the, you know, wedding thing were afterthoughts. Suddenly being thrown in to the bustle and stress of last minute wedding preparations in a strange city as the go-to errand girl made for an odd mental shifting of gears or at least that’s the only excuse I can come up with for how the next day I managed to hit a wall in a parking garage and just completely screw up my front bumper.
Thankfully a body shop was able to get me in on Monday for a temporary fix that would serve me well enough on bumpy, forest service roads and, ultimately, all the way back home. Between the prospect of driving my sad, janky vehicle and leaving behind beloved, but rarely seen friends my trip of blissful solitude in the mountains suddenly seemed…lonely. Instead of getting on the road early as planned, I dawdled around on Tuesday and finally forced myself to leave in the afternoon. Destination: Lost Creek Campground. Google maps puts it at 2 hours 40 minutes from Denver and that seemed pretty accurate. Aside from a 2 mile stretch when you first turn on to 56/Lost Park Road where I was legitimately concerned my car would shake apart, it was a smooth drive and all of it accessible without high-clearance or 4wd.
TL;DR: You can get amazing cinnamon rolls and coffee at The Makers in Aurora, NE.
Day 1: I arrived at the trailhead, which sits just before the campground, around 3:30pm. The parking lot was nearly full, the campground nearly empty. Everything I read mentioned that the mandatory, free, self-issued permits would be available to fill out at the trailhead, so I spent a few confused minutes when the only permits here were $15 overnight permits for the campground. I figured they didn’t apply to parked cars and we hit the trail around 4:30 with me only slightly concerned I’d arrive back to find my car towed. Any concerns were alleviated when further along the trail I came across a Lost Creek Wilderness sign and a metal box filled with permits and pencils. Onward we continued, counterclockwise along the loop, the meadow turning to woodland.
The light was dwindling and around 6:30 I decided to stop, just for dinner, at an established campsite in Willow Gulch. After getting my pack off and sitting down, I thought better of it and decided to make camp. I’d only walked a couple miles on trail, but I was tired from the lack of sleep over the weekend and didn’t really feel up to night hiking. I’d only eaten two pieces of bacon that day, but had zero appetite and had to force myself to eat the gnocchi dish I’d been so excited for off-trail. The night air cooled quickly, so as soon as the dog and I were done eating and cleanup complete we headed to bed. I had to wear all my insulation layers, but I slept comfortably. The sound of Indian Creek to the west made for some nice white noise.
Mileage: 2.2 miles
TL;DR: Was feeling unenthused about my hike because of stuffs and got a late start.
Day 2: I woke up sometime around 6/6:30 and stayed in my bag for a lazily long time. There was frost on the ground and outside everything was peaceful and still in the morning light. I decided to make coffee and it was then I realized I’d forgotten to put my water filter in my bag along with all my electronics. Sweet, that’s probably shot. I also couldn’t get my stove to light, I guess because the canister was cold, so I decided to just pack up and stop later for coffee. It was probably 8 when my feet hit the trail.
The trail continued along, slowly gaining 500ft the next two miles. At approximately mile 3.45, I filtered more water at a creek crossing. Just after the crossing the trail turns into a 10% grade over the next 2 miles to the trail’s highpoint around 11,882 ft. I was definitely feeling the elevation change here and decided to take my lunch break before reaching the top. Trail pizza was on the menu and it brought me right back to those few lucky days as kid when I got to bring the pizza lunchables to school. All it needed was a capri sun. The first hiker I’d seen out there passed us going the other way while I was eating.
We continued on and were finally rewarded with views breaking in between the thinning tree line. A little higher and the trail opened up on to a grassy, yellow plateau framed with wind-sculpted red rock and blue mountain peaks beyond. This is why you come to Colorado. I’d walk a little farther and the view would change ever so slightly, bringing some new element into the frame, so I constantly found my self saying, “wow,” out loud and reaching for the camera. There’s definitely an argument to be made for doing the loop clockwise so you finish the hike with these expansive views, but all the ambivalence I’d felt about hiking alone when I could spend more time with friends melted away up here.
Some kind of rodent, a marmot, maybe, poked its head out of a rock pile and eyed us curiously. I also had cell service for the first and last time, so I reached out to friends and family letting them know I was alive.
One important point that came up in my research is the almost guaranteed afternoon storms in Colorado and the danger of lightning at higher elevations. In the distance I could see rain falling and knew I couldn’t linger long. The trail headed down soon enough, winding its way around more red rock formations and eventually through a small aspen grove. It started raining lightly once I was below tree line and I intended to press on in my descent. The light rain turned to light hail and my dog started protesting, so I found a sheltered spot and set up the tent to wait out the rain. We were there an hour and a half while it continued to rain.
The trail continued to descend eventually transitioning from a loose, crushed rock surface to a soft, piney covering that felt amazing underfoot. All the colors were saturated from the rain and the pine trees smelled amazing. Aware of the time we’d lost, I didn’t take any more breaks except to filter water. It was getting to be about 5 or 6, but I wanted to make more miles and so I passed by the first campsite I saw. It was in a low lying meadow right by a creek and everything I’ve read about site selection suggested this could be a problematic location. I soon regretted passing it by as the next stretch of trail was a series of switchbacks down a steep, wooded slope. I definitely need to improve my map reading skills.
I caught a little bit of the pink sunset and alpenglow through the dense tree cover and when it got darker I pulled out my headlamp and tried to make the best of my mistake. After another 2 miles or so I saw some lights and heard a couple voices and a dog barking. The trail crossed a creek here and between that and the lights in my face I was initially a little confused about where the trail went. As is the case with many of the established campsites on this trail, this one was basically just a widening of the trail with a fire pit and some clearings for shelters. The voices belonged to a father and adult son duo who had just come down the same way and settled on this site, poor as it was. The dad asked if I was by myself, which is a question I keep on my backpacking bingo card ever since the thread here on interacting with women in the backcountry. Honestly, they were totally cool–no weird vibes–and they welcomed me to camp there with them. It was a little after 8 and I was tired, but I didn’t like the idea of camping 5 feet from the trail and another 10 feet from a creek. And let’s be real–I just wanted my own space where I didn’t have to worry about modesty and stupid stuff like that. The topo lines on the map for the next section were further apart and I assumed that meant I’d come across a good, flat, camp spot if I pressed on. So I did.
Did I mention earlier I really need to improve my map reading skills? It did not flatten out and in fact started up hill again. I considered turning back, but my stubbornness prevailed. After another mile the trail met the Lost Creek at the deepest crossing so far–maybe knee deep for a shortie like me–and not something I wanted to tackle in the dark. I looked around and found a spot that seemed level when I lay down and then magically changed to slope in every direction once my tent was set up. I gave the general area a second look and stumbled across another of the ubiquitous fire pits and a flat-ish site, albeit gravel covered, just a few feet away. I picked up my tent and moved it to my new home for the night, fed the dog, and went to bed.
Mileage: 13.6 miles
TL;DR: Sweet views and less sweet night hiking.
Day 3: I slept okay. It had been warmer than the previous night, but gravel isn’t exactly cushy. Normally I can’t eat first thing in the morning, but skipping dinner had me ravenous so I tore into some jerky, TJs crispy broccoli, chocolate bars, etc., and downed some Via mixed with cocoa. Breakfast of champions, for sure. I got on trail without much delay, crossed the creek, filtered some water, and made my way towards Refrigerator Gulch. There were some campsites marked on Gaia that I’d been aiming for the previous night and sure enough 5 more minutes of walking is all it would have taken to reach some primo spots.
Refrigerator Gulch was just plain cool. More of the pink feldspar and iron oxide colored rock formations towering above or peeking out of the evergreen canopy and the creek rushing below. There were beautiful aspens, the morning light illuminating their leaves, some of which were beginning to go yellow and pale clumps of grass, mid shin in height waving in the intermittent breeze. The trail crossed over the rocks in some parts and required scrambling. Then the trail started to climb in switchbacks mirroring the previous night’s descent. The sun was out hotter than it had been the days before and so when I came across a boulder with a view of the gulch and mountains beyond, I stopped, set out some things to dry, and went about assembling another trail pizza. A couple came hiking down trail and we exchanged hellos. Soon after that the yellowjackets came out and said their hellos, crawling over every inch of me and my gear. Scout kept snapping at them in frustration, but thankfully they made no effort to retaliate. A little bit longer and the dog from last night came trotting up the hill, her owner and his dad not long behind. They asked where I ended up camping and expressed that they’d been worried about me–3 more to BINGO! After a brief chat we exchanged good byes and safe hikings and they left us to our swarm and lunch. The yellowjackets would prove to be a constant pest the remainder of the afternoon. Anytime we stopped for more than a minute, no matter if it was sunny, shady, breezy, or still, out they’d come. They weren’t biting, so certainly an improvement over the mosquitos which I’ve gathered are prevalent here earlier in the year.
Later we passed a large group of maybe ten 20-something year olds who were stopped for lunch just before a creek crossing. I should have gotten a full 3 liters of water here, but I took for granted the frequent, but not always marked on the map water sources. Eventually we reached the intersection with the Goose Creek Trail which heads south to the Shaft House and the Goose Creek Trailhead and north towards Wigwam Trail and eventually back to the Lost Park Trailhead. Goose Creek Trail had less and less shade as it climbed higher and with the heat I was going through water pretty fast so I decided to take a nap until it cooled. I set the tent up, which was just the rainfly and foot print, got settled on my pad, and along came our reliable friends, the yellowjackets. After a frustrated and fruitless killing spree where more just respawned like in some kind of sadistic video game, I gave up on the idea of a break. Just as I was finishing packing up, a group on horseback came up the trail. I announced myself so as not to spook the horses. One of the riders remarked that this would be a pretty tough climb on foot. I agreed and jokingly suggested they give us a hitch. Once they’d put a bit of distance behind them, Scout and I started off once more, tired and thirsty.
The trail climbed only a short distance more before descending and all the while I followed the trail of fresh horse droppings, like breadcrumbs from Hansel and Gretel reminding me how slowly I hiked in comparison. It was only a mile and half, according to Caltopo anyway, until we came across a water source, but it had felt like 5. It was a low flowing, muddy offshoot of the Wigwam Creek and the most beautiful sight I could imagine. I filtered just enough to keep going and soon came across a much cleaner, stronger flowing section where I drank to my heart’s delight.
At the lower elevation, the trail was well-shaded from pines and the ground well-cushioned with their needles. Grey boulders and tree roots jutted out as the path bisected the steep forest floor and it reminded me more of trails I’d hiked in southern New Hampshire than anything I’d seen in Colorado thus far. The creek runs parallel to the trail for much of this stretch, occasionally crossing to the other side. Fallen giants of trees formed lines across the slope, fractured and splintered at the points of impact. There was plenty of lichen, moss, flowers, and other flora offering small, intimate views that contrasted with the grandeur of mountain vistas earlier in the day.
By the early evening the terrain flattened out and we started seeing many of the typical campsites with firepits surrounded by stacked log benches and flat pine-needle-covered tent spots. This would be my last night on trail and I decided to end the day early, eventually settling on a cushy spot tucked beneath a couple pine trees and 30 feet or so from the babbling creek. I cooked up my own version of Skurka Beans and Rice, watched some netflix, took care of chores, and settled in for a restful night of sleep.
Mileage: 6.5 miles according to Caltopo, but I remember it being 8 something on Gaia at the time
TL;DR: Freaking yellowjackets e v e r y w h e r e. Also Refrigerator Gulch is neato, but what's with the name?
Day 4: I woke up to another beautiful morning and set off at an easy pace. A couple miles in I saw a big dark shape moving away from me in my periphery. It definitely seemed too big to be a bear. The trail rounded a corner here, bringing me closer to the area whatever it was had just gone. And there he was, a gorgeous bull moose, 50 feet away, maybe less. I stopped, waiting to see what he was going to do next and mentally plotting a safe exit just in case. He just watched us for a minute and then turned around making for deeper in the woods.
After another mile or so the trail opened up to grasslands, different than the meadows we’d passed earlier–rolling hills at the base of Windy Peak and the Kenosha Range to the north with the eponymous creek carving away low spots in the expanse. This was one of my favorite spots.
I explored a rock formation which stood by itself in the middle of the field and found some poor bush crafter’s lost pocket knife in a leather sheath. I carried it in my pocket, cuz worn weight doesn’t count, foolz. Nothing much else happened as I made my way towards the trailhead. I passed a dude with a pretty minimal looking backpack, saw a couple off in the distance, and had seen a large group earlier in the day, so traffic was definitely picking up heading into the weekend. The trail headed back into some woods and included a short stretch up a boulder field. I arrived back around 2:30 to an overflowing parking lot, happy to be done but looking looking forward to the next trip.
Mileage: 8 miles
TL;DR: Saw a moose, PM me to ID your lost knife, Joe Robinet, and I survived.
Thoughts on gear and other miscellany:
  • 3F UL pack–2nd trip for this pack. No complaints. Leaning towards getting a light framed pack for the future, but will upgrade shelter and bag first.
  • CMT Carbon Trekking Poles–first time using poles, no knee pain this hike, thumbs up.
  • Nemo Switchback–previous pad was an Exped Synmat 7. I wanted to try CCF for the simplicity and the weight savings. 6 sections for me and 6 for the dog. When I picked good sites, I found this more than comfortable for side sleeping.
  • Sea2Summit Pad Coupler Straps-I needed some straps to attach dog’s pad to her pack and thinking the pads sliding around would be an issue like it was with the inflatables, chose this to serve both purposes. CCF did not slide around in the field and these are annoying to use as accessory straps.
  • Soto Amicus–there had been a fire just north of this loop around Shawnee Peak in August, so I was concerned a fire ban could follow and picked up my first canister stove. This setup was slightly heavier than my alcohol one, but it worked well and I can see my self grabbing it first on future trips.
  • Peak Design Clip–this was a splurge purchase I wasn’t sure I should go for, but it made carrying the extra weight of my dslr a breeze and comparing the few shots I took on my phone to those from my camera is all the justification I need to hang on to this.
  • Merrell Trail Gloves 4–I got these to replace my Vapor Gloves, wore them for some day hikes and then switched to my Shamma sandals for summer. When I put them on at the trailhead, they felt tight so I threw my sandals in my pack just in case. Turns out they had only temporarily shrunk from being washed and they were fine after a couple miles. No blisters, but my soles were pretty sore, and the extensor tendons in my right foot were not happy from day 2 on. Hiking in my Shammas felt better even though they were more minimal, so I don’t think I necessarily need more cushion.
  • Gaia GPS- I should have familiarized myself with the app more before the trip as I’ve since found some features that would have helped on trail. I’m not sure if I prefer it or Avenza more.
  • Not bringing a sleeping shirt–It was a simple way to drop some ounces and the arid west was the perfect place to try. I think I’ll stick to sleeping in my fleece on any trips with nights cool enough to merit it.

2019.05.10 02:34 Tion3023 [EVENT] The Young Pioneers of America

As the Revolutionary Continental Military is established, and as civilian support for it increases, the High Command of the Great Lakes Commune has devised a way to capitalize on this support.
The Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of America will be nationalized. (As well as all similar organizations.) In its place, The Young Pioneers of America will be established. It’ll be the youth wing of the Democratic Socialist of America.
Based primarily off of the Young Pioneers League of America and inspired by the Pioneer Movement in other countries, the Young Pioneers of America will be a mass patriotic organization. Composed of young individuals from the ages 5-21, the state ethos and values of the Great Lakes Commune such as equality, progressivism, socialism, and patriotism will be firmly installed from a young age.
Members will attend special events, parades, and festivals. They’ll be subjected to higher physical standards (Depending on their choice of branch), and will have the option to attend YPA summer camps in beautiful, high-quality campgrounds.
Members will also be taught special skills such as how to speak a second language fluentiallg, or how to master a musical instrument.
All expenses will be paid by the state. Everything from their instruments to their uniforms . Replacements and damaged items will also be covered. No cost is too great for our children.
Overall, in an ironic twist, they’ll be given the best the state can offer.
Patriotism specifically will be catered to the more conservative remnant portion of the Great Lakes Commune in southern Illinois. This will help to foster long term loyalty to the state.
Pioneer Leadership programs will occur in the form of achievement badges and ranks. Ranks can either be granted from those higher or from elections. They’ll have influence on events and policy.
Main Uniform
Similar to JROTC, members of the YPA will have to wear uniforms. Their will be some creative practices allowed on a case by case basis. The GLR isn’t opposed to individualism, though it’s stressed that this is an orderly and uniformed organization.
To promote large numbers in the YPA, parents and youth will be presented with free childcare, nigh free college and a wide range of job prospects.
These job prospects will range in three areas.
The Workforce
The Civil Service
The Military
Membership in the YPA can ensure an automatic lucrative appointment in the first two branches. And the third, like the JROTC, will see members being granted a officer commission. This’ll see a healthy, loyal, and innovative officer core.
As young pioneers reach eighteen, they’ll be introduced to four year courses to help them become competent in these positions. They’ll be given the opportunity to change course if they dislike their initially careers. Upon reaching 21, members will be granted the option to join the DSA formally.
All youth in orphanages will also be listed on the program, though to a greater extent. These poor and disadvantaged foster care children shall have the state act as their parents in a literal sense. And in turn, these abandoned children shall be raised to love and take care of their parents. The state that raised them.
Over $1.5-2.5 Billion will be initially located for everything from college funding to campus construction. This will be taken from surplus in the education budget.

2018.06.29 12:58 Hagisman [Data] The 5-4 decision cases where Justice Kennedy sided with the Majority decision.

The following data was gathered from Washington University Law. There are a couple of problems with this data. First of all it only goes up to 2016. Secondly this doesn't mean Kennedy was the swing vote, just that he was part of the 5 of the 5-4 decision.

About Aaron Kelly: The shadow cast by the city of big shoulders is a shade where a certain imagination gets ignited. Perhaps it’s all the train tracks that harken back to when Chicago was truly freight handler to the nation, sending catalog dreams speeding over steel to far off corners of the country. Aaron Kelly grew up thinking big and making plans, and wondering where those trains were going to. Falling under the influence of Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Jack Kerouac, his songs aren’t too dissimilar from those crates and packages of the last century. They carry the promise that something good is coming. These are songs meant to ease a burden and bring a smile, carefully crafted and made to last. Aaron has been featured by American Songwriter Magazine, and released Barefoot and Bottomed Out, his first solo album, in 2016, after zig-zagging across the country for the last 7 years with his band, Overman
