    Ugh, remember when I got light headed and almost fainted and I thought it was too much cake?

    Happened several times since, and last night it happened with 0 notice not even a second to prepare, I was just standing still, and immediately it put me right on the floor :( Really scary feeling, freaked my family right out.

    Been at the hospital for 18 hours for tests (CT scan etc), they have no idea what's going on, but until they figure it out I'm not allowed to drive at all.

    We're also considering cancelling our Mexico trip next week, after had had to cancel our Costa Rica trip in January when we all got covid again.

    Blah, I'm just really sad right now.

    But some of you were right, it was something more and worth checking out.

    Hopefully I get home by tonight :(((

    Recording reveals Oklahoma county officials talked about hiring hitmen to kill local reporters

    McCurtain County, Oklahoma is in shock this week after a secretly recorded conversation revealed that a local sheriff and a several McCurtain County commissioners discussed hiring hitmen to murder local newspaper reporters.

    According to local news station KXII, the recording was obtained by local reporter Bruce Willingham, who deliberately left a recording device running in a place where he believed county commissioners were holding illegal secret meetings to evade public scrutiny.

    Upon listening to the recording, however, Willingham quickly realized he'd found more than evidence of just illegal meetings, as he heard McCurtain County Sheriff Kevin Clardy and McCurtain County Commissioners Mark Jennings and Robert Beck, and Alecia Manning discussing the possibility of committing murder.

    At one point in the recording, Commissioner Jennings offered that "I’ve known two or three hit men, they're very quiet guys" who would "cut no f*cking mercy" if hired to kill local reporters.

    Jennings can also be heard lamenting that it's no longer considered politically correct to lynch Black people in the United States.

    "I’m gonna tell you something -- if it was back in the day, when that when Alan Marshton would take a damn Black guy and whoop their ass and throw him in the cell? I’d run for f*cking sheriff," Jennings said.

    "Yeah, well, it’s not like that no more," replied Sheriff Clardy.

    "I know," complained Jennings. "Take them down to Mud Creek and hang them up with a damn rope. But you can’t do that anymore. They got more rights than we got."

    Update : these people don't mess around

    I was in the ER for 24 hours and got an ECG, 2 CT scans, an MRI, 25 vials of blood taken, consults with 3 doctors, and 2 neurologists, prescription for blood thinners and something else (because they want to make sure its not mini strokes), and consults for an optomologist, neurologist, ENT and something else I forgot.

    I can't drive anymore and we still don't know what it is, but they definitly took me seriously and everyone was so nice and I'm hopefully on the path to figuring this out...

    Thanks everyone for the kind wishes

    ❤️ Shacknews

    I'm exhausted, sleep time

    Shackers who stay in hotels for work

    Tonight is a new one for me. I am in a hotel with ~40 rooms or so and I am the ONLY person here. There isn’t even an overnight attendant.

    I have placed several traps and tricks to ward off both ghosts and intruders but I expect to sleep very little tonight. This is kinda freakin me out, man. Anyone else had something like this happen?

    If I die tonight each one of you can have a single Skaven Clanrat from my collection.

    Our gun culture is fucking sick, like a cancer, rotting and killing people daily.

    This kid rang the wrong doorbell - he was picking his brothers - and the homeowner shot him through the glass of the front door.

    No warning. No confrontation. Guy just fucking shot him. Didn't even open the door.

    He is miraculously still alive, but in critical condition.
