The Daily Man-Up: The Metaphor Of The Tree

How then can you wonder at good men being shaken, in order that they may be strengthened? No tree which the wind does not often blow against is firm and strong; for it is stiffened by the very act of being shaken, and plants its roots more securely: those which grow in a sheltered valley are brittle: and so it is to the advantage of good men, and causes them to be undismayed, that they should live much amidst alarms, and learn to bear with patience what is not evil save to him who endures it ill.

Of Providence – Seneca

The Chilling Last Words From Pilots Of Crashing Planes

September 12, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Morbid, TRUTH |

Vladivostokavia Airlines, Flight 352

The plane crashed and exploded in flames in Siberian woodlands near the village of Burdakovka, about 21 miles from Irkutsk. The aircraft crashed during the third turn in a landing approach to Irkutsk, an intermediate stop for refueling. The first officer was flying the plane, when at 2,600 ft., an audible alarm sounded indicating a wide angle of attack. Eleven seconds later the aircraft swung around 180 degrees and entered a flat spin. The captain ordered the engines at full throttle but it was too late and 22 seconds later the plane hit the ground, belly first, broke up and burned. Incorrect actions of the crew. Due to poor communication between pilots, they put in the wrong parameters while landing causing the plane to descend at the wrong angle. As a result, the plane stalled and entered a spin and crashed. All 145 aboard killed.

What’s It Like To Have An Orgy While On LSD?

September 12, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Experiences |

So, a few years back it was that blissful time right when the last semester of college was finally over and it was time for summer. For us, summer meant getting fucked up and making memories, preferably at the same time.

My four friends (Liz, Patrick, Jamie, Sophie) and I decided we should definitely all go camping one night. We live in California and agreed that there is no better way to kick off the start of summer time than to drive up to Lake Tahoe to go camping and trip balls. All of us are at least a little into drugs, so you have five college stoners, some of us being psychedelic enthusiasts as well. All of us had tried acid before, except Sophie, who had before had only partaken in the sticky icky green, but was really interested in LSD.

It was early June and it was fucking beautiful out. The drive there was amazing, it was a clear and sunny day with a slight breeze. Once we finally arrived at our camp site, we spent a good half hour not even talking to each other and just admiring the view. It was around 3 P.M when we had set everything up. We had our tents, blankets, pillows, snacks, and other random shit we wanted to bring with us, and of course, some real good LSD that Jamie and I had saved over from a few months before.

After sitting around talking about past acid experiences while smoking a few joints, we all agreed we were ready to drop. Sophie was a bit apprehensive at first, but then curiosity got the best of her and she was in. I don’t remember exactly how much everyone took, but I know I had 300 mics. and everyone else had at least180.

Confessions Of A Man Who Spent Nearly 18 Years In Prison For A Crime He Didn’t Commit

September 12, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Experiences, TRUTH |

In 1995, Eric Glisson was arrested for a taxi driver’s murder and eventually sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. Glisson was convicted for the Jan. 19, 1995, murder of Bronx cabbie Baithe Diop after a woman named Miriam Tavares testified that she had seen and heard the murderers from her bathroom window. Glisson, who was sentenced to 25 years to life on Feb. 3, 1995, was one of six people Tavares pointed out. The group was quickly labeled “The Bronx Six.”

From New York’s maximum-security prison Sing Sing Correctional Facility, Glisson relied heavily on the Freedom of Information Act to prove his innocence claims after his appeals were denied,

Cross became convinced of Glisson’s innocence after he visited the scene of the crime and noted it would have been impossible for Tavares to have seen or heard anything from her bathroom window as it was 100 yards away. However, it wasn’t until 2012, after Glisson had been in prison for over 17 years that he was able to obtain undeniable evidence of his innocence. Cell phone records from Diop’s mobile, which Glisson got a copy of through the Freedom of Information Act, revealed the phone had been used to call family of two Bronx Sex, Money, Murder gang members after the murder and the district attorney had known all along, NBC reported in 2014. By coincidence, a letter Glisson wrote to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York crossed the desk of Investigator John O’Malley, the man who’d heard Bronx Sex, Money, Murder gang members Jose Rodriguez and Gilbert Vega confess to killing Diop 10 years prior.

O’Malley, who told Dateline he’d had no idea someone was serving time for Rodriguez and Vega’s crime until that time, signed an affidavit testifying to Glisson’s innocence. Glisson would sit in prison another four months before prosecutors completed the legal process to set him and another member of the alleged “Bronx Six” free on Oct. 22, 2012. Glisson spent four months shy of 18 years in prison 

Were you framed? Was it a mismanaged case or both? Seems odd that 5 people go to jail for one murder.

I believe it was both.

Were the real killers connected to you in any way, did you know them or know of them before your arrest and wrongful sentence?

I didn’t know them personally, but apparently they lived in my neighborhood.
