Nice hotel but too much air freshener!! - Review of Ocean ...

Anyone know what the unique Crown Casino air freshener smell is ?

The smell hits you when you enter the complex. I have always assume it has some sort of psychological affect that attracts you to it.

What kind of air fresheners do hotels, casinos, and resorts use? and how can I get my house to smell like that?

What popular/highly rated fragrances do you think are terrible?

For me there’s two that stand out.
YSL Lhomme ultime: literally smells like bug spray to me
PDM Herod: smells like and old woman who spent her morning at a funeral with too much incense, then went to a casino that sprayed tons of cheap air freshener to “cancel out” the cigarette smell

A Vegas Miracle - how I won $129,000 in my 3rd tournament ever

This is how I won $129,000 in my 3rd ever poker tournament. Note: don't try this, it probably won't turn out well for you.
I spent about 6 months grinding up a $5,000 bankroll playing home/casino games ranging from .5/1 to 1/3. The week that I hit that $5,000 mark, Matt, one of my best friends from college informed me that his job had placed him in Las Vegas for the next month and that I could crash with him for a few nights if I wanted to come on out west. I had frequent flyer miles for the flight and some Mlife/Fremont hotel comps for the rest of the trip. My grand total for flight and lodging for 10 days came to $200.
Now, I’m not going to bore you guys with low-level cash hand histories. The next 10 days were filled with me playing lowstakes poker for 10-12 hours a day. It’s as fun as it sounds – it’s not. I was having a good time in Vegas otherwise – but towards the end of the trip I had a realization: 1/2’s the same everywhere. I didn’t have to fly out to the desert to raise to $7 preflop.
After 10 days, my grand total from poker (and a fair amount of dumb degenerate shit on Fremont) was -$186. That wasn’t what I came out to do — I knew that I was a better player than my recent results had indicated. The morning of my return flight, I decided I was going to play tournaments until I either busted my $5,000 bankroll or hit something worthwhile.
I impulsively decided to not get on my plane at 11:30am. Checkout time from Luxor was at 11:00 – and I didn’t know where I was going yet. I had 30 minutes to pack up my stuff and figure out where I was going before they’d charge me a fee. I sorted TripAdvisor by cheapest first – I’ve stayed in crappy hostels/motels before and overall am a very low maintenance person. I figured that by staying somewhere for $20 a night, I’d be able to maximize the amount of shots I could take before flying back home. I accepted that there was a real chance I’d go back broke – but I didn’t really care. If I didn’t take my shot now, then when?
I booked the cheapest bed in Vegas - a 6-person shared hostel just past the Stratosphere. Let's just say you get what you pay for — it was not a happy place. A fair amount of the people in there were bordering on homelessness and there was barbed wire surrounding their outdoor gym. In addition to this, I had the constant stress of knowing that all that separated my bankroll from the rest of my roommates was a tiny lock. I took the Deuce to the strip, lived off food comps, and turned down invites from my friends to hang out. I was in town to play poker, nothing else.
Disclaimer: I had never played tournaments prior to heading out to Vegas. My only knowledge of hand ranges was from watching televised events. I downloaded a free Nash chart app on my phone while on the Deuce to the strip and studied it for 5 minutes – whatever, I get the jist of it. Let’s play some cards.
The first day of doing this I played the $140 daily at the Aria. Top 13 spots paid -- I finished in 15th. It was depressing to say the least — I felt as if I was at rock bottom. Before the first night of sleeping at the hostel I called the airline to see if I could get on the flight that I had deliberately missed the day prior. I couldn't.
I made it my goal to at least cash something so that I could get a decent hotel room.
I couldn’t have slept more than 2-3 hours the first night there. One of my roommates was loudly vomiting all night, the sheets itched, and I was going through an existential crisis... like dude, you’ve got a finance degree and you’re really doing this shit?
While on the bus to the strip, I opened Poker Atlas and saw that there was a $200 satellite to win a seat into the $1,600 Venetian main event. I decided that I was going to go take a shot at that.
I was at risk twice in the satellite but after studying the GTO method on how to win coinflips, I persevered and won a seat to the main.
The first day was surreal – once again, I was running on minimal sleep due to my housing arrangements, but I remember the following hands from day 1:
  1. Button opens to 2.2x, I’m in the BB with Q9cc. SB folds, we go HU to a flop of 832c. He c-bets, I call. Turn 4x, x/x. River Ax. I check, he bets, I x/r to like 3x his bet, he insta folds. I take it down and show air.
  2. UTG+1 opens, MP calls, I flat on the button with K10ss. 3 ways to a flop of Qs43xx. UTG+1 bets 40% pot, MP calls, I call. Turn is the Js. UTG+1 bets 60% pot, MP calls, I flat. River comes the 8s. UTG+1 snap bets 80%. MP flats, I flat. I announce king high flush, they both muck.
  3. Folds to the SB, he limps, I look down at Q10o, and check. Flop comes KQ6r. He leads 35%, I call. Turn 10. He bets, I call. River comes a J. He bets, I tank for about 45 seconds then flick in a call, he shows 76o… ship it.
The average stack after day 1 was around 40k, I bagged like 65k. I walked back to the Deuce stop outside of the Venetian and headed on my 30 minute ride back home. I kept thinking to myself, someone’s gotta win this thing, why not me?
I had to get in the money for this tournament to be able to get the fuck out of there. A min cash here was over $3k – that was more than enough for me to get a suite on Fremont for a few nights and party for a bit, then get home with my head held high.
Day 2: I get up at 7am after already being completely awake for the past 4 hours. There’s no way I slept more than 3 hours last night. I hit the Denny’s by the Stratosphere then get on the Deuce.
I get to the Venetian and feel like I’m about to fall asleep. I go to the self-serve coffee/tea dispenser in the middle of the room and make myself an iced coffee. I get to my table, and the cocktail waitress comes around. I ask for another iced coffee and toss her a fiver.
Here are some highlights from the 1st half of day 2:
  1. I open 97ss on the button, BB flats. Flop comes AK3s. BB checks, I bet 35%. He throws out a 5k chip – which I interpret as a x/r to my bet. I groan, make a joke about it being the first hand of the day, and start to muck. The dealer stops my cards midway before hitting the muck, and informs me that he didn’t raise, that he called my flop bet. Everyone laughs, I go silent and wait for him to make change. Turn is the 2s. He thinks for a second and bets 30%. I tank for like 30 seconds, then flat. River is a blank. He thinks for a second, then checks. I bet like 30% pot. He tells me that I’m an angle shooter and mucks. I tell him I’m not an angle shooter and show my 9 high. Everyone laughs, we get on with playing.
  2. CO opens, I 3b 87dd in the SB to 4x, he flats. Flop comes 1032d. I check, he checks. Turn is the 6d. I bet 55% pot, he flats. River comes the Kd. I bet 60%, he tanks, tells me he thinks I backdoored diamonds, then folds. Damn, these players are pretty good.
  3. I open KK UTG to 2.5x, UTG +1 flats. Heads up to a flop of K43r. x/x. Turn 8, I bet 40% pot, he calls. River 3, I bet 80% pot, he tanks, then calls with AK.
I bring my 3 racks of chips to the new table and immediately get some comments – whatever, I’m just on a heater, it happens. At this point, my body was giving out. I was trying my hardest not to fall asleep in between every hand.
Cutoff opens, I’m in the SB, I look down at KK. I put in the 3b, folds back to him. He puts in a healthy 4. We’re the two big stacks at the table – I’d guess he was 50bb effective while I was around 65bb. God damn, am I good enough to fold kings here? No, I’m not. I shove, he snaps, I know that I’ve just fucked up my tournament. He shows the aces. The dealer puts a king in the window, and I hold. I’m for sure the chip leader now.
I lose a few 40/60 and 60/40 flips and chip down a bit. I still have a very healthy stack, probably around 80bb.
The next 3 hands are from the second half of day 2:
  1. Aggro Asian guy on the button. Folds to him, he opens to 2.2x, SB folds, I look down at 43ss and raise to 7.5x, he flats.
Flop comes 894cc. I check, he bets, I call. Turn’s another 9. I check, he bets 75% pot, I call. River’s the 10c. I check, he bets 1.2x pot. I ask the dealer for a count of the bet – meanwhile, villain looks like he’s going to shit himself. I flick in a chip, he throws down KcQx. I laugh a little, show my 43ss, and obnoxiously say ship it.
  1. I open KQo UTG+1, MP 3bets me. I figure that a 4b from UTG+1 could take it down a fair amount of the time, so I decide to go for it. He thinks for a second and flats.
Flop comes AK4r. I check, he checks back. Turn is a 6, goes x/x again. River’s another brick. I put in a 30% value bet. He does a little grimace and tanks for like 20 seconds. It looks like he’s going to fold so I start verbally telling him that his queens are good. The dealer informs me that you’re not allowed to talk about your hand to another player. I inform him that I’m not talking about my hand, I’m talking about villains’ hand. Dealer laughs and lets me continue to antagonize villain. MP starts talking back, asking if I’m really bluffing. I inform him that once he folds, I’ll show the bluff. He ends up calling, I snap show, he pays me then gets up from the table to go for a walk.
  1. We’re playing 6 handed. UTG opens, MP flats, I flat TT on the button. 3 ways to a flop of AT9ccc. UTG bets 50% pot, MP folds, I put in a medium sized raise. He thinks about it and flats.
The turn is the Kd. He pauses for a second then checks. I figured AxKc was his most likely combo. I didn’t think he could fold AxKc to any sizing – I decide to overbet jam 2x pot. He tanks for like 5 min and eventually lets it go. He tells me later he folded AxKc. Nice fold sir.
I finished day two 2nd in chips out of the 64 players remaining. More importantly, I was in the money. My friend Matt offered to give me a ride to the hostel to grab my stuff.
On the way to the hostel I’m telling Matt how trash the place is and he’s kind of like yeah man, whatever, it can’t be that bad. We gather my belongings and head on out. Matt remarked to me that the hostel reminded him of jail mixed with a summer camp.
I open a same night hotel app and see a room at the Four Queens available for $110. The lady at check in was nice enough – however, she informed me that the only room they had available at my price point was a smoking room overlooking the Fremont St. experience. I paid the $20 to upgrade to a non-smoking in the quiet part of the hotel. Vegas man, I swear.
It’s like 2am at this point -- I get to my room, sit on the bed and close my eyes. I open them and it’s 11:00am. Ah fuck man, I gotta get to the Venetian. I hop in the shower, brush my teeth, and freshen up. Even if I don’t have clean clothes, whatever, I’m second in the main, who cares.
Some interesting hands from the first part of Day 3:
  1. I had two inexcusable punts in this tournament. This is the first one: I open 5h5c from LP, BB calls. Flop comes J62hhh. x/x. Turn is a 4x. x, I bet 50% pot, BB jams 15bb. I called – and immediately realized I fucked up, big time. He had 2 big chips in his stack that I didn’t see, making his shove effectively like 25bb. In addition, I didn’t have the 5h, I had the 5d. I really didn’t ask for a count or double check my hole cards. Villain turns over 64o and holds. In my defense, I literally didn’t know what ICM meant at the time. Whoops.
  2. Someone who I recognize from poker TV jams 22bb UTG. I’m in the CO with JJ, I ask him how much it is, he’s talkative and seems genuinely comfortable/down for me to call. I fold – I run into him a few days later at the Aria, he tells me he had AA there. I believe him.
  3. CO opens, button instantly jams 30bb effective. I’m in the SB with TT and 25bb – live reads, we’re flipping. I call for all in my effective stack, CO folds, button has AQ. I hold. He’s not happy I called with tens. Oh well, sorry bro, gg.
  4. MP opens, CO 3 bets to 7bb, button jams 20bb. I look down at 2 black aces in the big blind. I reshove, MP folds, CO calls off his 20bb stack. I’m up against AQ and QQ. I hold.
Even with my atrocious punt earlier in the day, I’m the chip leader again.
We’re down to about 15 left in the field. UTG opens, I 3b AKo on the button, he jams 20bb, I call. He has 99, a king comes on the flop and he’s gone.
It’s day 3 of the main and we’re playing 5 handed with 12 people left. Let’s fucking go.
  1. Button opens to 2.5x, I’m in the BB with A8dd, I flat. Flop comes A104r, I check, he bets, I call. Turn is a 7, x/x. River A, I bet 1.2x pot. He tanks, calls, I show, I’m good.
  2. CO opens to 2.5x, I’m in the BB with 108dd, I flat. Flop comes Kd4x2d, it goes x/x. Turn is a Kx, I check, he bets 60% pot, I flat. River is the 4d. I check, he bets pot. I tank and let it go. He tells me later he checked back a weak king on the flop.
  3. SB completes, I’m in the BB with J9o and I check my option. Flop comes Q108r. The SB donks out into me for 60% pot. I flat. Turn comes a brick and he leads into me for 60% again. I raise to 3.5x his turn bet, he thinks for a while then flats. River is another brick. He bets 80% pot into me. I tank for a while, then shove. He starts laughing and folds QQ face up.
Less than a week ago I was grinding buffet comps at Planet Hollywood. Now I have guys correctly folding top set to me.
I’ve made it to the final table. I pick up a few small pots and the two shortstacks at the table get eliminated in quick succession.
This is without a doubt the most pointless and just plain out stupid punt of my entire life: I open J2dd on the button into a ~18bb SB and a GTO robot with mid 7 figures in career earnings in the BB. Don’t do this, this is quite literally lighting money on fire. SB folds, BB flats. Flop comes Kh8h3d. I cbet, BB calls. Turn is the Kd, goes x/x.
River comes a 7h, he leads into me for half pot. Whatever, I’m going for it – I put in a raise. He thinks for all of 5 seconds then calls me with KQh. Wow, I just punted away $50,000 in ICM. Jesus Christ dude, what the fuck.
For the next orbit or two, I’m clearly pissed at myself. I get up after my button and do a lap around the poker room – I’m good. The monkey tilt is gone, and I’m ready to get back to playing normal ranges.
Anyway, nothing else really happens for a while – I look down at AKo UTG and raise it up. Folds around to the BB, he thinks for a while, then jams for about 20bb. I snap, he has AQo. I hold. I’m now second in chips. We go on a 10-minute break.
When I get back to the table, the prospect of a 5-way chop comes up. We’re all tired – and the pay jumps are very significant. If you couldn’t tell from this story, I’m a degenerate, but in this spot, I’m willing to reduce variance a bit. We run the numbers and come to an agreement – we all agree to take a very slight ICM bump to give 1st place a bit more money than his stack is worth.
I just won $129,000 -- huh? This was my second tournament cash – not too bad considering that it was my third tournament ever. Maybe I should start learning how to play MTT’s now.
I take $124,000 in a check and $5,000 in cash. I’m leaving Vegas in 4 days and don’t plan on coming home with any of the cash.
The winner of the tournament’s a pretty cool guy and he asks if I want to crash in his guest room tonight… like yeah, if that’s a real offer, I’m down. I pick up my toiletry bag from the Venetian concierge and we hit the Uber.
The next morning Matt picks me up at his house – I hit the Chase bank and deposit the $124,000. I take Matt and my other friend, Spencer out to the Sterling Brunch over at Bally’s – the entire time, Spencer just kept repeating “Davis, what the fuck”. I don’t know dude, seriously, what the fuck.
I get a suite at the D downtown that night and (very) long story short I end up hitting $100 on a number at roulette at 5am. It’s time for bed.
Here’s a link to my Hendon Mob, verifying my tournament result. Hopefully I see some of you guys at the WSOP in 2021.

Initio Side Effect (Extra Characters)

I got a decant of this recently and was very excited to try this one out, as me and CJCity have similar taste
Anyway, when I first smelled this fragrance, it reminded me of Y EDP, but sweeter and more fruity. It was actually better than I expected, up until a few minutes later. It quickly turns into what I can only describe as a smoker’s car who tried to cover up the scent with vanilla/incense air fresheners. It also kinda smells like a lounge you would find in a high-end casino or something (not for me, but am I glad I got a sample)

A Not So Extended Stay

When I first started in hospitality I was working at an ancient extended stay hotel, a boxy building, devoid of all personality, carpeted entirely in the most hideous vomit green and peacock blue pattern one can imagine, I wish I had a photo, not a bit of the floor was untouched by this curse. The building, although basic and utilitarian on the outside was a strange maze on the inside, the stairwell were offset in a strange way, the halls seemed to bend in odd ways, shit coming off the walls and ceilings. It had charm in other words. Three stories of a building almost entirely falling in on itself, a maintenance disaster. And of all the strange things I saw working extended stay, this one wasn’t related to the rooms or maintenance, I just wanted to set the tone of what this place was like.
It smelled of mildew, cigarettes and air freshener most of the time, but after a year there you kind of get used to it and only notice when the guests who are walking in screw up their face after taking a gasp of the dank air. This particular hotel had the weirdest office I’ve ever worked in, there was no front desk, there was simply a lockable door to the right of the sliding doors with a placard reading “FRONT OFFICE” in all caps embossed in brass, obviously. There was also a single, unisex bathroom between a couple of the first floor rooms that was very not for the public. These are just a few of the quirks of this place, though there were many.
Another important bit of context is that I had just gotten my very first cell phone, a Samsung Juke in cherry red, a couple of days prior to this. For those who haven’t seen it is an abomination of a flip phone that looks like a switchblade with Down syndrome, but it was pretty cool at the time.
Working night audit there was one of the most chill experiences I’d ever had at a job, it was literally clicking a button, doing a load of laundry and hanging out for the other 7 hours of the shift. The manager there, who was the coolest boss you could ever wish for, would just let me sit there and play Unreal Tournament 3 and Grand Theft Auto IV on my laptop all fucking night, as long as the duties were done, that was the life. It was absolutely uneventful and being in a fairly calm part of town, nothing ever happened, not even at night. Unlike most hotels, people don’t usually wander into an extended stay as much, especially locals.
Except, not this night. It was around 12:00 and a man knocked at the door, he didn’t that look off, maybe a little flush in the face, clearly had been drinking but he tells me over the intercom that he wanted a room. It’s important to say I think that I didn’t have as much experience with those types as I do now, so I made the absolutely idiotic mistake of letting him in.
“C-can I get a room the night, p-please?” In person, his breath stank and his voice was clearly way more intoxicated than it had appeared over the intercom. He hiccuped, like a fucking cartoon.
“Sure, I will just need your ID and a form of payment.” I naively said as he wobbled around the room like a Weeble.
He threw that at me but using the least effort possible, it wasn’t a throw filled with animus but extremely drunk laziness, they almost floated to me. I was sitting at that point filling in his information as he continued to wander and eventually just stood looming over me like a drunk statue, his faced was etched with rage and confusion. Now, I always make an attempt to be funny, but to seventeen year old me this was fucking terrifying. This guy was being erratic and intimidating, puffing his chest out and huffing like he was on something a bit heavier than a couple Moscow Mules.
He started pounding his hands on the desk and I naively asked “Is everything ok, sir?”
“NAH! No. Nope. Nothing’s okay. It’s just not okay.” I could see any form of him covering his emotions melting like a wax mask, the confusion turned to just rage and he sat down in the chair across from my desk and I sat literally shaking in my seat. This had never happened to me up to this point, about a year in I was lucky enough to never have to deal with someone like this, so I wasn’t sure how. I felt like a hostage, no way out.
“You ever been down to Parkland Casino?” I shook my head as he rambled. “I went down there today. Today, like, earlier.” He kept taking these menacing fucking pauses. “I went and lost eight KEYS my main, eight. You fucking believe that shit? I had a few drinks and I got into it with one of their ‘guards’ that FUCKER.” He was spitting at this point and pounding his knees with white-knuckle fists.
“They kicked me OUT! Said I needed to leave, so I just, I need a hotel room, yeah... Just need a room.” I think I may have been in some form of shock, because at this point I could literally just muster an “Okay.” Whispered at a barely audible volume.
“You know an AK-47?” He calmed down, which made this worse.
“Yeah...” I agreed, what else would I do?
“Got one of them at home, maybe I should go back and pay them a visit, maybe that’s what I should do.”
“I don’t know about all that.” I guess something in me thought I could reason with him.
It was at this point his speech was replaced by animalistic grunts as he stripped off his shirt, stood up, walked around and promptly sat back down where he was before. At this point I figured I was probably going to get shot or stabbed, this guy was completely fucking insane, drunk or on something, maybe all three.
He began to take off his pants and I got up from my desk. “You look like you need something to drink.” I wanted to get out of that office.
“Yeah, water. Please.” He said sternly, sitting in his underwear in the chair in front of the desk.
I ran to the bathroom after grabbing a cup and began to have a minor breakdown, I stared at myself in the mirror for a moment, ran my hands through my hair, splashed some cold water on my face. Taking a moment to reflect that this might be it, I don’t know if I believe it now, or was overreacting as a teenage me, but it felt real as shit then. I unconsciously played with the light switch out of pure anxiety and then something hit me like a hammer.
I was late to the game when it came to texting, I didn’t really text friends or anything at this point and had a phone purely just to have one really, but I felt a blessed vibration in my right pocket and produced the almighty Juke. It was a missed call from a number I didn’t recognize, I ignored it and shot a text to my manager.
Fking weirdo in lobby plz call cops. A couple seconds later it vibrated back with an answer.
I did u ok?
Yes in bathroom
I filled the empty cup that I had brought with water, took the deepest breath I could muster through my nervousness and pushed through the door like it was some sort of magic barrier. He was still just sitting there, like a marble statue.
“Here’s your water.” He stood up slowly and grabbed it from me, sat back down and took it all in one gulp.
Maybe I watch too many fucking movies, but his part made me more nervous than anything, I saw the red and blue lights through the blinds on the window and this is when I thought - fuck, this is it, he’s going to kill me because he knows I called the cops, this is going to turn into a hostage situation.
But like most times, real life isn’t the movies and he got up as he saw them too and began to pace back and forth again, pushed is way through the office door and the police saw him on the other side and entered. They dealt with it calmly and collectedly, they talked him into surrendering and walked him out of the building without incident.
One of them came in to speak with me an I told him essentially the story I’m telling you now, including the shooting threats he had made, I felt like they were important.
The GM called while I was talking with the police to check on me, asked me if I wanted to finish my shift or if I wanted him to come in, I insisted on staying. “See you in the morning, then. Sorry you had to deal with all that.”
That is to this day and hopefully ever, the scariest moment I’ve had in this business, even if that threat wasn’t real, it certainly felt real. This was also, funny enough, the day I started listening to Art Bell’s Coast to Coast AM on every night audit shift I worked, which is a tradition I still continue to this day.

Food money that goes on your arm

I got six different stories. Hold tight and make sure your hats don’t fall off from the ride. 1. Had a friend a few years ago on fb begging about had she didn’t have money for food or anything for the next week because of her check blah blah blah. I have a change jar and a dollar jar. Usually if I break large bills and get singles and change back. End of the day I’ll put them in a jar and end of the month will splurge on something with it. I had about 50$ in it towards the end of the month. I give it to her, and see in a few days she gets a new tattoo. I message her grill her out and want my money back. She is broke and doesn’t have a job. I guess she gets a new job like a new lover every week, can’t hold any job down or nothing more than that time. Hahaha shame on me for helping a friend out. 2. Different friend about the same time frame asking me for like 20$ for supplies and cat litter, because he’s like number one above... I’m at work, vendor at grocery chains third shift, on lunch break and tell him to come down. He’s a good dude and chilled. Didn’t think he’d be an twerp. He starts grabbing shit, like 50$ in stuff and stuff he don’t need, air fresheners, expensive shampoo and finally gets the biggest bag of cat litter possible. I tell him to put most of it back and get a smaller bag. It came out to like 28$ no worries not that far off. Few weeks go by and no money. I message him a few times, hey I’d like to get paid back. Like 10pm at night final text few days later. Hey I want my funds back, he replies to F off ect, ect 3. This happened a year before those two with someone else. Car breaks down, needs 100$ in parts, broke ass. I cover him, few weeks go by, I hound him he finally gives me 20$ at a time. I drive a hour just for 20$ for 5 weeks straight, to get my funds back. Like week number 4 I see him at a casino blowing hundreds of dollars and he can’t pay me back. Dash forward 5 months later, in the store with the guy, I tend to let it slide, he doesn’t have his wallet and wanted me to buy him a 1$ frozen dinner. Nope not going to happen. Year later same thing happened and wanted to barrow 150$ for car repairs, told him he burned his bridges. 4. Lady friend I used to work with, never can hold down a job well and she’s mid 40s with kids doing better than she is. Calls and cries saying she don’t have any money for her youngest kid for food this and that, till she gets paid. She has 100$ amazon gift card she got from a buddy that she was supposed to get work clothes with. I tell her 70$ she said no 90$. Take it or leave it, she said yes, I drive down and hang out with her for a bit, catch up ect. Ect. She goes through the drive through and gets 12 pack of beer and 3 packs of smokes with the money she needed to help her kids. Came out to like 34$ and I’m just thinking. The boy who cried wolf. Hey I made out this time. 5. This happened like 8 years ago. Had a friends friend want me to drive their kid like 130 miles one way to drop them off for Christmas, could see their parents or so. It’s like 260 miles round trip, my car gets decent gas mileage so it’s not super expensive. Like 5 hours round trip, and 20$ in gas or so. Her and her parents were trying to pawn 10$ for gas and that’s it, told them 50$ they all complained for it for a few days finally agreed. Most people wouldn’t do it. I did and she complained half the trip because she had to pay half the cost for my fee so she could see her parents for Christmas and it’s the Christmas spirit and I should do it for free. No chicka, I’m not worried about the time wasted or the gas, it’s the wear and tear on my car driving that much. So, you can have a happy holiday. They asked me to do it again a few months later and no. 6. Same people as 5, the girls friend got kicked out and had nowhere to be, I was friends with her so I could help out because I’m the only one of their group that really had any decent car with actual headlights and wasn’t going to blow up anytime soon. I’m going from Toledo oh, to Sandusky, to Jackson oh. And then all the way back to the other two, so pretty damn far. I had a full tank of gas so wasn’t worried about helping out for gas until I needed it. I drive them to get her, and about ready to fill up and ask for money and then the mom tells me, hey I’m broke I don’t have any money for gas. Wtf, when I learned cash up front. Then they also magically had money for subway, foot longs for everyone but me.... eh I wonder why I’m reluctant to help people.

The Economy Is Booming, So Why Can't U.S. Grocers Hike Prices?

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-04-25/the-economy-is-booming-so-why-can-t-u-s-grocers-hike-prices
Grocery chains have long awaited the right conditions to charge more for their products, and a broad view of the U.S. would suggest this is their moment: Unemployment is near historic lows, consumer confidence is high and inflation is inching upward.
But companies are finding they’re losing the power to hike prices. That’s because Amazon.com Inc. and Walmart Inc. are engaged in a battle to the death on consumer spending, while low-cost chains Aldi and Lidl pressure brick-and-mortar companies. At the same time, shoppers are becoming less loyal to legacy brand names than ever before -- meaning they’ll go generic instead of paying up for labels.
“Retailers took advantage of lower food costs to push down prices, and customers became acclimated to that environment,” said Jennifer Bartashus, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence. “Now that inflation is returning, not only is competition in play, but customers are no longer used to seeing marginal price increases come through.”
The forces at play are illustrated by General Mills Inc., which has acknowledged that attempted price hikes for its Progresso soup and Yoplait yogurt ultimately hurt sales. The misstep exacerbated a slump in those key businesses, as shoppers migrated to other brands. Nestle SA has also experienced difficulties in getting price increases to stick.
It’s not just big food. Consumer companies are finding they’re being pinched by the same forces. Reckitt Benckiser Group Plc’s hygiene and home division, which sells brands such as Lysol spray and Air Wick air fresheners, showed solid volume gains in the most recent quarter, but suffered because of lower prices, sending its shares plummeting. Kimberly-Clark Corp., maker of Huggies and Kleenex, reported flat or lower prices across its categories in its latest quarterly results.
In the U.K., Tesco Plc and its competitors have started to push up prices to compensate for the post-Brexit weakening of the pound -- but it hasn’t been able to fully pass on higher costs to shoppers. In France, competition has prevented Carrefour SA and Casino Guichard Perrachon SA from implementing price hikes.
The article also mentions about Aldi and Lidi expanding into the US. I also remember a Hormel engineer talking about the pressure to cut costs in the manufacturing area, and the challenges that go along with it.
With the news of PM being hit hard by stagnating e-cig sales, RIP my $VDC (and Unilever) holdings.

(Mostly) exhaustive free camping guide for van dwellers

As a newbie here, I've been wanting to research free camping for van dwelling myself, so I turned it into a quick guide. There's three main methods and 21 different ways to do free camping.
The Free Camping Via Web Search Method
Generally the first method for anyone finding free campsites is searching the internet. There are several really great directories out there to find free camping. Some of them are better than others overall, but each have their own strength and weaknesses. Here’s a list of the best of those sites in no particular order.
#1 Freecampsites.net
Probably my favorite on this list, freecampsites.net is a huge directory of free campsites curated by the thousands of users that visit the site every day. A typical listing will tell you how the site is rated, show pictures of the site, and will usually include qualitative descriptions of how you get to some of the more out of spots on the map.
In addition to having a large directory of free and cheap camp sites, their trip planner makes it easy to see all the listings along a particular route so you can plan your trip around free sites.
#2 Boondockers Welcome
Boondockers Welcome is something like a paid social network of RVers who let other RVers camp in their driveways or on their private land. The fee as of writing is $19.95/year for people offering to host (and boondock themselves) and $24.95/year for people who just want to boondock and not host.
#3 Campendium
Campendium is a lot like FreeCampsites.net. In fact, there is a lot of overlap in the campsite listings. It even seems a little more complete than FreeCampsites. However, there are some free spots exclusive to both so it’s worth checking them. Campendium is a little more professional looking and has a few useful features that FreeCampsites doesn’t.
First, reviewers have the ability to record cell signal strength and wifi signal at a particular site. Lots of reviews means lots of data on cell strength across networks.
Second, I like the rating system a little better. It breaks down the ratings into five really helpful categories:
*Access
*Location
*Cleanliness
*Site Quality
*Noise
Breaking them down that way gives you a much broader view of the quality of the camp site in question.
Third, you can filter campsites by “free” which is a huge help sorting through the paid options.
#4 Ultimate Campgrounds
Ultimate Campgrounds has one thing going for it. They have an app. Other than that, they have most of the same listings Freecampsites.net and Campendium have, without the helpful extras, like reviews.
#5 AllStays
AllStays is, according to this really great in-depth review, a great app for finding campsites of any cost. I haven’t personally used it yet (I have a dumb phone), but I plan on trying it out as soon as I can. The desktop website leaves a lot to be desired, so it looks like the app is the only viable option to take full advantage of their data. According to Kait Russo (author of the review linked above) finding free campsites on AllStays requires the use of a few filters in your search:
…use the “Avg Rate – Free” advanced filter or “Forest”, “Overnight Parking”, “Public Lands”, “Walmart Ask to Park” and “Rest” filters. Be sure to check the rest area for restrictions on overnight parking.
#6 Couchsurfing.org
Couchsurfing.org is more of a social network than a website. It’s also more for people who actually need to find a roof over their heads than van dwellers who need a driveway to park in. That said, it’s still a great place to find people who are willing to put you up free for a night or two. Getting on there and talking to people will most likely land you with a free spot anywhere you can think of in the US and Canada. Couchsurfing is an international phenomenon too. Most of the world’s best travel destinations have people who are willing to host you. Just be sure to let them know you’re bringing your own roof and all you need is some parking for the night.
#7 PublicLands.org
If you’re a little more adventurous and are out west, PublicLands.org lists many of the same free campsites as the websites above, but it also gives you extensive data on public land and wilderness areas so you can find your own free camping spots. The data stops once you get east of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, but it’s a significant enough portion of the US to list it here.
The Free Camping Via Overnight Parking Method
Besides looking through endless listings on digital screens, there’s always stores and institutions that allow overnight parking. If you’re near a town and just want a safe place to park for the night, there’s a lot of big box stores that will allow you to park overnight for free. Here’s the most complete listing I could make of those stores. Also, if you’re looking for a database of these all in one place, overnightrvparking.com sells access to its data for $24.95/year.
#8 Casinos
Casinos love it when people gamble. They make money. And they’ll bend over backwards to accommodate anyone with even a remote prospect of gambling. That includes people with RVs or vans. Most casinos provide free overnight parking for anyone who reserves a spot. Some even offer some free money for gambling. The website casinocamping.com is the best resource for finding free casino campsites.
#9 WalMart
Walmart allows overnight parking in just about all of its locations. There are a few exceptions between local laws and individual manager preferences. It’s always a good idea to call the local Walmart before you set up there, but it’s by far the most popular option for most van dwellers and RV campers on the road.
#10 Cabelas
Cabelas typically allows overnight parking at their stores. Here’s a review from We’re the Russo’s again that details an overnight Cabela’s experience they had.
#11 Costco
Costco, assuming you have a membership, allows free overnight parking. Call ahead to make sure.
#12 Cracker Barrel
Cracker Barrel typically allows overnight RV and van parking. As a bonus, you can get a bunch of knick knacks to decorate your van and some seriously delicious butter biscuits for an air freshener.
#13 Bass Pro Shops
Bass Pro, like Walmart allows overnight parking on a store-by-store basis. Call the individual store ahead for info.
#14 Sam’s Club
Sam’s Club, like Costco, allows overnight parking, again on store-by-store basis.
#15 Truck Stops
Truck stops of all stripes often allow overnight parking. But be warned, some truckers don’t take kindly to anyone other than truckers parking there as spots are generally at a premium.
#16 Rest Areas
Rest areas tend to vary more widely than places like Wal Mart when it comes to overnight parking. Be sure to call ahead, or check sites like AllStays (above) to learn whether the one you’re approaching accepts overnight camping.
Free Camping Via Miscellaneous Methods
Beyond big box stores and online directories, there are always unconventional, yet still effective strategies for finding free parking on the road. Here are some of them.
#17 Family and Friends
Family or friends are always a good source for free camping. Plus, you get to catch up and tell them all about your travels. One of the things Callie and I are most excited about for when we move into the van is the opportunity to visit a lot of college friends that scattered across the country right after we all graduated.
#18 Wwoofing
Wwoof stands for World-wide opportunities on organic farms. It’s essentially a work/shelter exchange program. You travel around and work on organic farms. The organic farms shelter you and feed you. Most of these farms, because they’re farms, generally have room for RVs and van dwellers. To participate, you’ll need a membership to whatever country’s organization you’re travelling in.
#19 Ask the Police
Sometimes, contrary to popular belief, police can be friendly. In fact, local police usually know best where the best free parking in the city is. I’ve heard some stories of people doing overnights in the station parking lot just because they asked nicely.
#20 Paper Maps
Good ol’fashioned paper maps can be a great resource for free camping. Not only do they show you public lands, they also work without an internet connection. Benchmark maps are particularly favored by the RV and #vanlife crowds.
#21 Exploring
Just plain exploring where you have a hunch might be good free camping can often bring a windfall of good campsites. The folks from Kombi Life do it all the time, and they tend to find the absolute best spots in their travels.

Confrontation

The Venerable, Adrift in the Monsua Nebula
“Shuriah. Shuriah if you can hear me, disengage the landing gear.” Corman shouted as he made his way back to The Sunset Eclipse.
Flashes of ionized plasma rippled in the distance, past the cloudy haze of the nebula. With the sensors of the Eclipse haywire, there would be know way to track a potential ion storm if it approached. Corman and Shuriah had to move quickly, they had to stop Aval before he could escape with the prototype device that The Venerable was guarding. Corman reached his ship and wrapped his hand around an outer handhold as the landing gear disengaged. Small bursts of RCS thrusters pushed The Sunset Eclipse off of its perch. Corman couldn’t safely re-enter the ship because there was no time for the decontamination process to cleanse the radiation his suit had picked up.
“Corman, bad news. Energy spike at one of the other parts of the cruiser. Someone’s found a way to turn on the power.” Shuriah’s voice crackled through Corman’s helmet.
Corman held tight to the outer hull of the ship, “Gentle thrust now, enough to get us moving in that direction.”
Another flash of lightning lit the nebula up as the Eclipse started a smooth glide across the debris field. There was an empty hangar where the cargo hold of The Venerable rested.
“Easy now, take us in smooth.” Corman guided as Shuriah twisted the Eclipse to avoid pieces of the cruiser.
The Sunset Eclipse slid past the threshold of the hangar, the landing gear lowering and locking themselves on the hangar floor. Corman pushed off of his ship and landed, engaging his suit’s magnetic boots to allow him to walk upright.
“Keep the ship ready for takeoff.” Corman told Shuriah as he drew his blaster from its holster.
He disengaged the safety on the blaster, tightening his grip on it. Corman made his way towards the hangar’s exit, the hum of energy coursed through the cargo hold of the cruiser. Aval had indeed found a way to power the remains of the derelict. Corman found himself in the hallway of the derelict. To his left was a path to empty space, the hull being blasted open from an explosion. To his right, a path further in. Corman raised his blaster pistol as he slowly made his way through the interior of The Venerable. Corman took a left, rounding the corner that led him to a large room, a large blast door standing ominously at the other end. Scrawled on it in a deep red substance were words of warning. They said things like Stay Back or Don’t Open.
Corman checked his left as he entered the room but was blindsided by someone tackling him from his right. His blaster floated out of his hand in zero gravity as Corman hit the floor. His assailant was Aval, covered in an environmental suit. Corman raised his hands to block as Aval slammed a fist into Corman’s chest.
“You think I didn’t know what kind of game you were playing?” Aval shouted, “You think I didn’t know what that ingot was?”
Corman pushed Aval off of him, throwing the man to the ceiling. Corman stood up and ran as fast as he could, slowed down by the required magnetism of his boots it took to run. Aval pushed off the roof and crashed into Corman, sending both of the men twisting into the air. Corman threw a punch at Aval but the older, more experienced man, grabbed his arm and brought his knee into Corman’s stomach.
Corman winced as the bludgeoning force slammed into him, forcing him to exhale. Aval held tight onto Corman as the rain of blows kept coming, each punch knocking Corman senseless. Corman finally got a moment of reprieve when he pushed Aval off of him, throwing him to the other side of the room. Corman landed on the ground and raised his fists, he was breathing heavily and shaking. Aval stood to match Corman.
“You’re putting up more of a fight than Twado did. When I’m done with you, send him my regards.” Aval shouted.
Small microthrusters fired across Aval’s suit, accelerating him as he sprinted towards Corman. Corman took a step back as the older man advanced and raised his hands to block. Aval feigned a punch, following it up with a twisted high kick. His boot hit Corman’s head. Aval activated the magnetic lock on his boots and pushed Corman’s head into the ground. Corman’s vision swam black as he struggled to remain conscious. Aval took a step back, admiring his work.
“Lucky for you kiddo, you’ll live for a moment longer. The door requires two people to open it. I counted on you following me.” Aval gloated as he collected Corman’s blaster which continued to bounce around the room.
Corman struggled as he pushed himself upright, the only reason he didn’t collapse back onto the floor was the zero gravity. He rose to meet Aval. Aval holstered Corman’s blaster pistol and pointed his own at Corman. He motioned to the blast door which had buttons on either side of it.
“Easiest choice of your life.” Aval stated.
Corman saw Aval grin as he drew Corman’s blaster. Keeping his own gun trained on Corman, Aval made himself flush with the wall. Shuriah was on her way, her helmet flashlight giving her away.
Corman cried a warning through his helmet communicator as Shuriah ran into the room. Aval clicked his tongue and squeezed his trigger at an unsuspecting Shuriah. The blaster bolt fired, a red beam that slammed into Shuriah’s back. An agonizing scream escaped the woman’s mouth as she collapsed, her body floating to the other side of the room.
“Shouldn’t have tried to warn her Corman. This is your fault.” Aval said, pointing both guns at Corman.
Corman took a step towards Shuriah but again Aval clicked his tongue, “Make the smart choice here. Open the door first.”
Corman stared past Aval towards Shuriah, who floated still in zero gravity. He knew that Aval would kill him too if he went to check on her. Filled with regret, Corman made his way to the nearby button.
“Smart boy.” Aval said as he made his way to the opposite button, he kept his gun trained on Corman, “On three. One… Two… Three.”
Corman pressed the button at the same time as Aval. The blast door slid open with a hiss as the room depressurized. Resting on a central podium stood a small sphere, held aloft by cables and wires that stuck out of it. Skeletons littered the ground around the object, having died long ago.
“Go, check on your lady friend. You’ll be with her soon enough.” Aval said as he stepped across the threshold and into the device’s room.
Corman ran towards Shuriah’s still body, grabbing her and lowering her towards the ground. The blaster scoring across her back was severe, the burns blackened the metal of the environmental suit. Corman placed a hand on her chest and felt the shallow rise and fall of her breathing. The blaster bolt hadn’t killed her… yet. Corman had no way of knowing if the protective layers of the environmental suit were compromised.
Meanwhile, Aval had reached the device. He raised his hands and grabbed the sphere. Aval lifted the device and started pulling wires out of it. When Aval pulled the last wire, the sphere lit up. Immediately both Corman and Aval were flooded with negativity. The haywire device letting off an unrelenting assault of emotional control. Corman stood up, his mind was flooded with everything Aval had said in the last couple of days. The negative emotion flooded him, spurned forth by the device’s activation. Aval held his head and muttered to himself.
Corman reached Aval and slammed his fist against the back of the older man’s head. The device shot out of Aval’s hand. Aval reeled against the blow but steadied himself, he turned towards Corman.
“I always hated you. You naive child.” Aval shouted as he drew his blaster.
Corman sprinted forth, narrowly avoiding Aval’s shot. He wrestled with Aval for the blaster, knocking it out of the older man’s hand. Aval shouted as he slammed his head against Corman, pushing him off. Corman pushed forward, his attacks had no technique to them, just wild punches that the more experienced fighter blocked. Blocking one of Corman’s punches, Aval countered with his own, slamming his fist into Corman’s visor. Aval pressed the swift turn in the fight and hit the visor again. His gauntlet slamming into the glass. Corman was pushed back, Aval delivering blow after blow focused on Corman’s visor. Eventually the glass would give and shatter.
Corman ducked under one of Aval’s fists and pushed himself forward, tackling the other man. The two men were launched towards the wall of the room, Aval brought his knee up over and over again into Corman’s face as the two men spiraled through the air but Corman held tight. Aval twisted to land on his feet, locking himself to the wall as he pushed Corman off of him. Corman landed on the floor of the room, raising his blaster towards Aval. Aval quickly looked down at the holster he had placed it in and found it empty, Corman had grabbed it as he was pushed off. Aval raised his hands as Corman’s shook.
“You won’t do it.” Aval said, “You ca-.”
The blaster fired, a blue bolt slammed into Aval’s chest. Aval stood, his mouth agape as he watched Corman squeeze the trigger again. The second blaster bolt slammed into Aval’s face. Corman’s eyes welled up with tears as he let go of the blaster, letting it float in the space before him. He looked down at his shaking hands, he had just killed a man, he had just taken a life.
“No, this was because of the device.” Corman thought to himself, but as he looked over to where the device was and found that it was dormant. The surge in power had faded. Corman’s killing of Aval was his own action.
Corman shook his head, he ran back towards Shuriah and scooped her up. He regretted not having the time to dispose of the device, but given the choice of saving Shuriah’s life or destroying such technology, there was no way he’d choose the latter. Corman ran back through the halls as he saw that the ion storm was still closing in through the hole in the ship’s hull. Corman saw that the boarding ramp for The Sunset Eclipse was lowered, allowing him to run up into the cargo hold. Corman slammed his fist on the button to raise the ramp and seal the hold. He tapped on a console and a flood of liquid burst forth from nozzles over and under Corman and Shuriah, he spun around to allow the decontamination process to work him over. He held Shuriah up and did the same to her.
Once the liquid stopped, Corman dragged Shuriah out of the cargo hold and into the ship itself. Corman lifted Shuriah over his shoulder as he ran to the ship’s infirmary. He tore his helmet off as he set the Rattataki down on a cot. He undid the clasps on her environmental suit, gently taking it off of her as to avoid any further damage to her blaster wound. Shuriah’s shirt had been badly burnt, the environmental suit absorbed some of the blast but enough damage had gone through to do its job. Removing her outer clothing, Corman set her in the empty bacta tank, strapping a breath mask to her face and closing the tank. It sealed with a hiss as Corman tapped the console, the tank starting to fill with the bright blue bacta.
After double checking to make sure everything was working fine, Corman sprinted towards the cockpit. He fired the engines as the ion storm started closing on The Venerable’s debris field. Corman released the landing gear’s grip on the cruiser and took off as fast as he could. Without the sensors; Corman would have to follow the navigation buoys back out of the Monsua Nebula, but because he did not have time to destroy the device itself, Corman could not leave a path back to The Venerable. Lightning started crashing around Corman, The Venerable acting as a pseudo lightning rod.
Corman twisted The Sunset Eclipse out of the way of a bolt of ionized plasma and dipped low below the fragments of the cruiser. Corman slammed the thrusters to max power as the Eclipse rocketed out of the debris field, now exposed to the storm.
“Come on… Come on!” Corman shouted as he rapidly approached the first buoy, without a second person, the ships guns were not operational.
Corman reached across the cockpit to the co-pilot’s terminal and tapped a few buttons. A tow cable launched behind The Sunset Eclipse as the ship passed the buoy, the cable attaching itself to the blinking beacon. Lightning flashed in front of the light freighter as Corman twisted the controls to avoid it. Having to rely purely on eyesight because of the nebula’s effect on the ship’s sensors, Corman scanned for the second marker as he retraced his steps at a much faster pace than before. When he saw it, Corman lined his ship up with it. He flew straight at the buoy before releasing the tow cable and flying below it. The towed beacon continued on its path and collided with the other one. An explosion rocked the Eclipse as Corman continued his breakneck pace through the nebula in an attempt to outrun the storm.
The controls shook in Corman’s hands as he brought the ship up for a rapid ascent to crashing into the next buoy which appeared from the dense haze of the nebula. He fired the tow cable once more, dragging the marker behind him. Thinking quickly, Corman veered left to avoid another blast of ionized plasma. Repeating his previous maneuver when Corman laid eyes on the next beacon, Corman accelerated past the resulting explosion. Only one more buoy was left, but Corman had no beacon’s to collide against it with. Tapping the center console, he readied the modular cargo hold to be detached. After confirming the order with the ship’s computer, Corman accelerated straight at the buoy. He flipped the switch and felt the control of his ship ease up. Without the bulky cargo hold, The Sunset Eclipse was a much more streamlined ship, the thrusters carried it faster. Corman spun the ship clockwise and brushed past the buoy as the former cargo hold slammed into the marker. The explosion dashed any hopes of recovering the piece.
Nearing the edge of the Monsua Nebula, the ship’s sensors started coming back online. Everything flashed warnings as the storm closed in much faster than The Sunset Eclipse could outrun, even with its increased thrust to weight ratio. Dense arcs of lightning roiled all around Corman’s ship as it broke out of the Nebula. The green hyperdrive light came to life as Corman slammed the ship into lightspeed, defaulting to the previous location the ship had been. The tunnel of hyperspace opened up before Corman who breathed a sigh of relief, they had made it out.
Four Days Later, Aboard The Sunset Eclipse
Corman was asleep on a nearby chair when Shuriah came to, she was laying in a cot. She groaned as she stood up. Shuriah was dressed in a white undershirt with matching briefs. She reached behind her and felt the web-like scar tissue from the blaster burn. She quietly made her way across the room to Corman and shook him awake.
“Hey sleepyhead.” Shuriah said, her voice was light.
Corman opened his eyes with a flutter and looked up to Shuriah, he immediately stood up and hugged her when he realized that he wasn’t dreaming. Shuriah returned the embrace. Corman let go when Shuriah asked him too, trying to avoid pain.
“Aval?” Shuriah asked.
“Dead. Power surge fried him in his suit.” Corman lied, he didn’t want to admit what he had done.
Shuriah nodded, “And where are we going?”
Corman smiled, “I told you I’d bring you back to the Ace of Staves when we were done. Who am I to break a promise? We’ll be arriving tomorrow, take however much time you need to freshen up just… don’t go into the cargo hold because it doesn’t exist anymore.”
Shuriah nodded and Corman hugged her one last time before heading out of the infirmary.
Eriadu System
Sunset Eclipse, maintain distance of three miles and wait until further instructions.” A voice said, broadcasting from the Ace of Staves to Corman and Shuriah.
Corman complied, settling his ship to the designated distance and waiting.
“Do you think they’ll still have our rooms ready?” Shuriah asked.
Corman shrugged, “Probably not if I had to guess.”
The two waited for the casino to send them clearance to land as Shuriah broke the silence again.
“What’s the first thing you’re going to do?”
Corman thought for a second before he settled on an answer, “Probably leave the guns in the ship this time. Then, I’ll probably grab a drink.”
“I think I’ll join you for that drink.” Shuriah smiled.
The casino hailed the Eclipse, “You have been cleared for landing, proceed to hangar two.”
Corman copied and slowly flew the designated hangar. Unlike his previous visit, Corman did not back his ship in this time. When Corman felt the landing gear engag, he killed the ship’s power. He stood up and Shuriah followed him out of the ship, boarding ramp descending from where the cargo hold used to be. A security team greeted the duo, two officers pat them down to make sure that no weapons were being smuggled in. When they finished, one turned to Corman and Shuriah.
“Welcome to the Ace, enjoy your stay.” The man said, motioning towards the elevators.

Green Arrow #13 - The Dregs of Society

Green Arrow #13 - The Dregs of Society

<< | < | > Coming November 1st
Author: Duelcard
Book: Green Arrow
Arc: Extortion
Set: 29
 
A/N: Adam let me write this one, what a nice guy haha! Check out Titans 3 on the 15th!
 
Oliver Queen Star City
 
I crouched low on a rooftop, beneath shadows cast by looming clouds. The moon was a sliver of a crescent tonight, disappearing for periods like a busy father from his children. The night air contained traces of air freshener and cooked pasta, but they were faint and fading. I took a look at the time: one minute to midnight. When the seconds passed, I leapt over the ledge…
...And onto the fire escape. I wasn't stupid enough to land on the street below and break my legs. Like almost every other night, I ducked into alleyways and through side streets, casting a wary eye out for crime. The streets had been quiet in some parts, but more rowdy in others. I just had to be in the right place at the right time.
Tonight was lucky. I started in the northern districts, moving my way down south. A few drunk teenagers scattered at the sight of the green hood, and I let them run: they’d be sober for the next few days, I guaranteed it. Anyhow, I finally came across a circle of burly men, all at least 6 foot and taller, loitering in a dim corner of an abandoned parking garage.
I silently made my way past the graffitied and weathered walls, keeping to the long shadows of night. The ring of men were talking in hushed whispers, occasionally stomping out the lit cigarette. It was entirely possible they were poker players who decided to wear wife beaters in this chilly dead of night. From my experience, though, they more likely than not worked for Thaddeus Cable.
“Shouldn’t you be sleeping?” I asked nonchalantly, leaning casually against a pillar. The men whirled around in surprise.
“I mean, it’s cold, and your bare shoulders are exposed. It’s past your curfew,” I smirked, gripping my bow with a tense fist.
“It’s the Arrow!” they yelled, as if that wasn’t obvious. One of them brought out a tiny cell phone and began fumbling on it.
The rest of the gang pulled out their concealed firearms, all of them tucked into their right back pockets. Credit to them: they excelled at uniformity. I could hardly tell one from the other, from sleeveless shirt to black jeans to cheap pistols.
“You forgot the Green,” I grumbled, rolling to one side, and firing the arrow I had in hand. The projectile expanded into a net and wrapped itself furiously around one of them. The others didn’t so much as glance at their ally and began to run toward me.
“Easy pickings tonight, huh?” I turned and ran in a zigzag fashion, as the first bullets embedded themselves into the concrete behind me.
I turned the corner and immediately fired a grapple above me. The claw stuck into the brick, and I scaled the wall with nimble movements. The men sprinted below me, and from then on it was really easy to snipe them off. One by one, they fell under net, stun, or a plain old arrow to the knee. Their pistols were soon scattered and pinned to the ground.
Bright headlights blinded me for a second, and I dove to the side as a fury of bullets threw themselves at the roof. They receded, and I heard a car door open. “Come out, Green Arrow,” announced a cool, collected voice.
Timing my breaths to three, I turned and released the arrow as soon as I had him in sight. He was a burly fellow, even more so as those I had just downed. Bandages wrapped around his fist, so I assumed he just finished boxing practice. His glare was dark and arrogant, and a black domino mask made his beady white eyes distinct. The newcomer nimbly dodged the arrow as it hit the concrete, a smooth perforation into the gray stone.
“My name is Dregz, and I’m the new, up-and-coming crime lord ‘round these parts. You just made work of my men,” he drawled. “They weren’t doing anything wrong.”
“Well, I don’t need to wait until the last second to figure out they’re criminals. I mean, you just told me they worked for you.” Dregz apparently wasn’t too bright, as he stood there, scratching his head and wondering why he just did that.
“Look here, Dregz, I’ve got the rest of the city to cover, and you’re wasting my time. I’ll let you choose which arrow you want delivered to the police with,” I offered as I lowered myself to the ground, brandishing out a few toward him.
With a glare, Dregz turned his back on me and began to walk to his car. I frowned. Had he not heard me? “I’m talking to you.”
He flipped me off without a second glance and got into his car. Confusion turned to a silent panic as I fired an arrow directly at his car door. He reached out faster than I could blink and caught the arrow between two fingers, before snapping it with a third. I watched astoundedly as he drove off into the night, my jaw wide open with disbelief.
 
➶ ➶ ★ ➶ ➶
 
After the encounter with Dregz, the rest of the night was relatively quiet. I broke up small gang fights, stopped a robbery, and bagged a few men who were smuggling firearms. It was actually surprising to not run into any of Cable’s men, but they’d be back. Crime was an engine of business, and felons were the gears to keep it running. I was more concerned with the fact that Dregz had shrugged me—the Green Arrow—off like snow on shoulder, and the fact that my recent wound in the arm began to hurt again.
After a few painkillers and a nice long nap, I woke up at around noon. Splashing water on my face, I looked at the man in the mirror. Bedhead with sunken eyes, and a slight grimace that carried hardship and years of pain. Yep, this was the Oliver Queen I grew up with.
A while later, I strode into Queen Industries to meet the new head of security there, a man called John Diggle. Mom had already ordered him to increase security at our corporation headquarters, but she didn’t mention one thing—maybe on purpose.
John Diggle was waiting for me in a small office, high enough to give us a view of the streets below, and the rest of the skyline above. The blinds were drawn up, and gray sunlight filtered in from behind large clouds. He was a dark-skinned man, sat in a suit he looked almost uncomfortable in, with hair cropped short and a wire attached to one ear. He waved for me to a comfortable armchair across from him, and leaned forward to shake my hand firmly.
“Boss. My name’s John Diggle, and I’m your security manager,” he introduced himself.
“Call me Oliver. And I’ve heard about you. From Mom,” I said, flashing a quick smile.
“Right, sure, Oliver. So this meeting...no one is to know about this? Is there something wrong with the security, sir?” he asked concernedly. I liked him; he took his job seriously.
With a small laugh, I reassured him. “No, not at all. Nothing of that sort. My mother probably told you to keep all corners covered, right? No matter the circumstances?”
Diggle nodded. “Yes sir. Everything is patrolled and locked, and all unidentified persons are to be arrested on sight.”
I leaned forward. “I want you to make an exception for these next few months.”
Diggle frowned for a split second, then recovered his professional composure. “Alright, sir. Go on, I’m listening.”
“You’ve most likely heard of someone called the Green Arrow. Wears a mask, uses a bow, goes out at night to beat up the bad guys. Well, last week, he helped arrest an employee for selling drugs to the criminal underground. I would never have known if not for him.”
He nodded. “We’ll try to turn a blind eye if we ever see him, boss.”
“Yeah. He’s a good guy, I think. And please, call me Oliver.”
 
➶ ➶ ★ ➶ ➶
 
Two nights had passed before I encountered Dregz again.
It was a bar fight, south of the city, and it had gotten quite out of control. Two large groups of men had exited the bar, found a nearby parking lot, and were brawling it out, using fists and broken glass and switchblades. I heard them about a block away and sprinted across the rooftops to shoot a firecracker arrow into their midst. One of the newest of my toys.
The ensemble of about twenty or so men stopped, admiring the dancing sparks until they fizzled out, and soon were at each other’s throats again, without so much a glance at me.. Alcohol must’ve held strong influence over them that night. I sighed, and pulled out an emergency weapon for these types of situations: a flashbang arrow.
It wasn’t as deadly as a regular flashbang grenade; Roy had made sure of that. It was designed only to stun opponents, by emitting a flash, a burst of sound, and another round of both. We’d already learned how effective sonic could be. I averted my eyes and shot it into the group, immediately covering my ears as well. Fifteen seconds passed before I allowed myself a look. All the men were dazed, stumbling on the floor, and eventually collapsing into unconsciousness.
“That was more effective than I thought,” I said aloud. Nearby people began to appear, wondering what had happened. I leapt onto the streets once more from my crouching position on a roof, and pointed a finger at the sleeping beauties. “They were having a bar fight. Don’t know what law that breaks, but the police can figure it out.”
“Again? Really?”
The familiar voice was accompanied by a familiar mountain-like figure. I did a double-take at the black domino mask and the damaged hands. “Dregz,” I uttered.
“You’re gonna get it this time, Green Arrow,” he snarled, and sprinted toward me.
“Real pleasure to meet you, too,” I quipped quickly and danced to the side, sticking out my bow in an attempt to trip him. In mid-step, his foot changed course and kicked the bow from my hands. My eyes widened as his foot slammed onto the pavement, and the rest of his body moved towards me, fists and all.
With a grunt, I threw myself to the street, and rolled, retrieving my bow in the process. Dregz didn’t break a sweat and continued to move towards me, and I turned to fire a grapple to a building and scale it. This was a metahuman adversary, I was a hundred percent and one sure. No way could he catch my arrow the last time and dodge my strike just now without any powers.
“Yeah, stay up there, little birdie,” Dregz called. “The next time we meet, I’ll have your head served to me with ketchup.”
I called back in response. “You’re not very intelligent, are you?”
Dregz scowled and began to walk away, and I stayed on the roof, watching him. It would seem that wrapping him in a net would be easy, but his superhuman reflexes were too fast. Maybe I could use his own dumbness against him, the next time we met.
And we would meet.
Because, I realized, as I disappeared into the shadows and away from the red and blue of sirens, that this was actually fun. I could go toe to toe with Dregz, which was usually a first. It hadn't been that ways since perhaps the Spider. This was actually exhilarating.
 
➶ ➶ ★ ➶ ➶
 
The week soon came to an end, and I once again found myself perched on top of yet another rooftop. I had developed an intimate relationship with roofs, especially ones that overlooked several streets. Roy would’ve enjoyed it too, gazing down upon lazy traffic and basking in moonlit breezes.
As a matter of fact, where was Roy? I hadn’t seen him at all these past few nights, and he certainly wasn’t picking up my calls. Maybe his family was out of town or in the hospital or something. I didn’t let it worry me too much. He could take care of himself.
Anyhow, midnight greeted me once again, and I took off toward the busier sections of the city, where casinos and underground clubs usually took over Saturday early mornings. I silently made my way down a fire escape clouded by shadow until I had a grand view of the loading area behind a factory.
A few parked trucks lined the lot, which was surrounded by an enclosed fence. The garages were mostly closed, except for one, where loud laughter and machine noises came from. A bright orange light illuminated the little vegetation around, including the little side street from where the trucks drove in from.
It was just my luck when I heard Dregz voice. Seriously, what was it with all these coincidental encounters lately? I crouched down on the metal stairs and watched as a few men walked out.
“You owe me and my men a few thousand, asshole,” Dregz said to a bound man with a sack over his head. “It’s been three weeks, and you still haven’t paid up.”
The hostage struggled, but Dregz’s men—more dumb muscle in undershirts—kicked at him, reducing him to weak groans.
Dregz pulled a firearm from his pocket and aimed it carefully at the bound man’s head. “You can’t pay, then you ain’t worth nothing,” he said, and pulled the trigger.
I blinked once as the gunshot rang out through the air. Dregz man began to turn to a nearby sedan, ready to get the hell out of there. I gritted my teeth, a sudden anger rising through me. “Says the guy who probably dropped out of high school,” I said with a cold rage, and leapt down, once again finding myself face to face with Dregz.
“How? Which one is God punishing?” Dregz exclaimed. He sprinted at me as his men left him in dust. Which was just fine by me. Less people to take down.
While running forward, I fired an arrow directly at his eyes, knowing he would dodge it, and kicked at the side where he went to. My boot connected with the side of his face as he turned at the last second, but it was still a minor victory. He stumbled backwards as I advanced with multiple high kicks aimed at his neck.
He backed up against a truck and rolled out of the way as my foot slammed into the metal. I grimaced as the jolt went through my entire leg, but kicked off to flip away. Where was the stun arrow I had? I fumbled with one hand through my quiver, while the other held the bow in a swordlike manner. Dregz rushed at me, but I kept dancing backwards, dodging his fast arm swings.
And then I pulled the arrow out and nocked it into my bow. A perfect fit.
The next time Dregz dove at me, I walked into his lunge. Even someone with reflexes like his couldn’t move his entire frame out of the way of one arrow directly to the shoulder. The point dug deep into the area above his collarbone, and 75 milliamps coursed through his body. His eyes rolled upwards into his head, and I rolled out from beneath him as he collapsed onto the wet blacktop. It smelled of burned skin and sweat.
With heavy pants, I left the police to do their job. It had been a tough night, but I still had the rest of the city to watch over.
