End Times preacher Sharon Gilbert says that an alien imitated her husband, and then it tried to have sex with her, and then it claimed to be Xerxes, and then Jesus got involved, and then the alien turned out to be a reptile with a posse of gargoyles. pic.twitter.com/aBqC2IMSqn
Tonight when you watch Children in Need please remember that, all being well, and sometimes against all odds those disabled kids you see could grow up to be...disabled adults. The shock of turning 18 when you're disabled is huge, 1) you're suddenly can't access a lot of healthcare, no more special clinic with all the facilities it needs to treat you, you're just a regular out patient now 2) And this is the one people can help with. When you TRY to do something under 18 you're "inspirational" or "doing your best" or just "A Great Kid", for example, being in goal and trying to play football. As an adult the MOMENT you show any activity that isn't work you're a benefit cheat (whether you're on benefits or not) and "faking it" and "the worst kind of scum". I've had abuse yelled at me for doing the exact same thing I got praise for as a kid. Yes I can, on good days do somethings, but OMG I'll be paying for it the next day, week, month, lifetime (ask those who knew me at the time about the difference in me before and after China). So if Children in Need gives you the warm fuzzies then PLEASE I implore you to treat disabled adults with the same compassion and above all else, UNDERSTANDING
I lucked into getting a code for the network trial of 'The Elden Ring'.
It's fair to say that based on what I've played this afternoon, I'll be dropping paper on this when it comes out in February.
It's basically a fully open-world Dark Souls.
If anyone's interested, I managed to get myself splattered all over the place by the first enemy I encountered - a f**k off great bit knight on a horse. Now, let's see if I can stay up till 3 for the next time they're opening the test up.
