A Federation Is Born! – Don’t Read Too Much Into This…

….

Date: March 15, 2019

The EQ. Foundation and Our Love Frontier are proud to announce, the arrival of the Magnificent Wrestling Federation!

I am now running an E-Fed, based upon the Fire Pro Wrestling simulator.

You are allowed to completely ignore everything appearing in this posting series.

I’ll write tidbits of story for this…at least when I feel up to doing so…There may be long stretches where I don’t…The storytelling is going to be goofy…possibly stupid, at points…probably best, early on…as I can draw upon old ideas I’ve had in my head for years.

This is comedy…It’s intended to be for a laugh.

…There will be references to the real world…but, this is still comedy…

Nearly every character is capable of winning a match [if that weren’t the case, what would be the sense in having them in the mix?]…even when their chances are very slim…

I wont normally do this…but, I may adapt existing MAP personas into this project [IE: I could not pass up on having THE BoyLove Vampyre]…Don’t take it hard, if I create a character based on “you”, and that character gets defeated…If it’s a chronic issue, I’ll try to retool the character a bit.

Don’t feel snubbed, if I never make a character based on you…The roster is already bigger than I wanted it to be, starting off. We’ll periodically do some rotation of characters…some will leave…get “injured”…”retire”…be gone…and someone else will arrive to fill the void…So, there’s eventual opportunity for new faces.

There are a few overpowered “monsters” in this roster…but, I’ve mostly aimed for a balanced roster, where good matches are being performed.

Until/unless I figure out how to use a modern spreadsheet…there will be no official rankings, nor win/loss record keeping…This may never happen, at all…it’s kind of tedious…

In order to challenge for a championship, one must have won a “#1 Contender” match…In order to get into said match, one must have won their previous match…so, there is a tiny bit of climbing and momentum, that must be established.

The Video Quality:

I’ll address the obvious before we start…

I’ve already recorded and uploaded the entire “Magnificent Championship” tournament…

I’m not really good or experienced with video…but I knew I could not be dealing with a multiple gigabyte file, for every single match…and I knew I did not want to upload monster sized files, that would take hours…and get screwed up, if I lost connection in that time.

I hammered out a process, which requires me converting an MP4 file to WMV…re-code that file into a much smaller [size ratio] WMV…then uploading that file to YouTube…

The “up” side, is that the matches have thus far been roughly 15 to 40 MB…and few have taken much more then six or seven minutes to upload…

…The “down” side, is that they aren’t great quality…though I can use YouTube code, to force browsers to display them in a specific [height and width] dimension…So, they’re small…they may be a tad hard to make out every detail…but, there shouldn’t be outrageous distortion, and you should be able to comprehend what is going on.

I might make the main events better quality…and special matches, as well…but I expect most of “the under card” to be like what you first see.

If it turns out the better quality isn’t to big of a pain, I may stop downsizing the files before upload…I like the better quality, anyway…and being able to skip an editing step, might be a good trade off…I don’t know.

Each “show” will have five or six matches.

I guess that is all, for now.

The next post in this series, will be our first card.

There is no set schedule…But I’ll try to have something new, every couple of weeks.

Tucker Carlson REFUSES To Apologize To Outrage Mob Trying To Get Him FIRED…

01) Tucker Carlson REFUSES To Apologize To Outrage Mob Trying To Get Him FIRED


“Tucker Carlson REFUSES To Apologize To Outrage Mob after they call for him to be fired from Fox News. Far left activist group Media Matters for America published comments from over 10 years ago where Tucker Carlson said offensive things on a shock jock radio program. Following this #firetuckercarlson began trending on Twitter as activists demanded he be fired and supporters rejected the demand using the same hashtag. Activists have repeatedly tried to drum up old comments to get people in trouble but these comments, like other comments used by activists for political reasons, were made publicly on national radio. Far left activists try to use old out of context quotes to push their agenda because it seems our culture has not yet become resilient to bad faith attacks. In December activists targeted the advertisers of Tucker Carlson in an attempt to destroy his show and this seems to be another political hit job in bad faith by faux social justice activists.”

Nano-bot can probe inside human cells – Magnetic ‘tweezers’ could help diagnose and fight cancer…

01) Nano-bot can probe inside human cells

“Researchers have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell with unprecedented precision. The nano-bot has already been used to study the properties of cancer cells, and could lead to enhanced diagnosis and treatment.

University of Toronto Engineering researchers have built a set of magnetic ‘tweezers’ that can position a nano-scale bead inside a human cell in three dimensions with unprecedented precision. The nano-bot has already been used to study the properties of cancer cells, and could point the way toward enhanced diagnosis and treatment.

Professor Yu Sun and his team have been building robots that can manipulate individual cells for two decades. Their creations have the ability to manipulate and measure single cells — useful in procedures such as in vitro fertilization and personalized medicine. Their latest study, published today in Science Robotics, takes the technology one step further.”

01) 49 killed in terrorist attacks on New Zealand mosques


“At least 49 people have been killed and 20 seriously injured after gunmen opened fire in two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, a coordinated and unprecedented attack that has shocked the usually peaceful nation. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the incident a terrorist attack in a press conference, saying the suspects held “extremist views” that have no place in New Zealand or the world.”

01) UK “Predator Exposure” gets plenty of exposure after their arrest

02) HUNTER HUNTED Paedophile hunter who starred in BBC documentary arrested by gun cops ‘over vigilante raid’

“Officers swooped on Phill Hoban, 43, and other members of paedo hunters, Predator Exposure

A PAEDOPHILE hunter who appeared on a BBC documentary spoke of his fury yesterday after gun cops arrested him in a dawn raid.

Officers swooped on Phill Hoban, 43, and other members of Predator Exposure over claims of false imprisonment, assault and public order offences.

It is alleged they acted unlawfully when they detained two suspected paedos after separate online stings in August and January.

Armed police dragged members of the Leeds-based group from their homes before quizzing them for six hours on Monday.”

A tad bit dated…but only by a month.
