How is this happening in a modern civilised country?? I just woke up last night to a car ramming into a dairy and a bunch of teenage thugs stealing shit and racing off. A drunk neighbor (that's its own whole drama) ran out there and clocked one on the head HARD with a bat and his friends carried him off into the car limp. But the cops question & arrest the neighbor? And not tracking down the military style fucking ram raiders? And of course the dairy just put up a sign that they're done. closing up forever. Nice family business i shopped at for years, GONE.
And this isn't even a bad part of town!!
End of rant.
I know sometimes footsteps sounds don’t work well, but why is scav audio so inconsistent?
They all emailed admin together and quit on the same day citing inhumane work conditions.
Gotta say, more power to them.
Was randomly looking around today and see a familiar house that I had some interest in getting ( you know to raise my family in) , it got bought up, and within a month flipped to an airbnb charging 200+ a night. What's worse, is I see this person has bought a few houses in the area, and converted all of them to short term rentals.
Ahh...can't wait until all of america is one huge rental that a small % of people own evertyhing. (sarc)
In truth I hope these people get destroyed in a crash. ALL I wanted was a single house.
Almost every day someone tries to squeeze past me as I cycle to work, because they can't tolerate going 20 mph instead of 30 mph for a couple of seconds.
A few minutes ago I just threatened to kick a shitebag in a Tesla's cunt in after he clipped me trying to squeeze by at the lights. Admittedly, I'm still buzzing from this interaction and probably not as rational as I could be right now.
It's seemingly getting worse. Almost every single day someone tries to squeeze through a gap that's not safe to get through. If they fuck it up it's me that gets crushed to death.
What can I do about it? If I get a camera and start reporting them will the police even give a shit?
Edit: a lot of people here need to go into the bathroom, stand in front of the sink and have a look at themselves. If your first reaction to "I would like to not be killed by someone as I try to get to work" is to say "aye, well what if you're going slow?" then you should know that's actually not a reasonable response.
So I ride the university bus to and from campus. When I get on it it's practically empty. Two stops later and this cute girl gets on the bus.
When she gets on the bus, it's usually sparsely populated — not empty, but not full at all. I usually sit near the back. I'm sat on one chair and my bag is on the other as the bus never gets filled. Now when this girl gets on the bus, she always sits in the same row as me, across the little aisle. When I started noticing this, I decided to switch up where I was sitting everyday. I'd sit in the front, middle and back of the bus. Yet when she got on the bus, she'd always make her way to the same row I was sitting in.
Now I started overthinking this and was wondering why she'd always sit near me on a relatively empty bus. I was wondering if something was up. I decided to test something soon after: I'd wait for when her bus stop approached and then would curiously look at the people getting on the bus, wondering if she in particular would look at me as she made her way to a seat.
Lo and behold, when she got on the bus, she would glance around scanning the area and then when our eyes met or when she glanced at my direction, she would make her way to the seat on the same row as me. Im on one side of the window and she's on the other. Even when i sat in the very back, with no aisle seperating the seats, she'd yet again sit in the very same row.
Every now and then while we're seated, I can see from my peripheral vision that she glances at me. Yesterday, I decided to do the same. While we were seated across each other, I looked at her direction pretending to look out the window she was sat next to. Im guessing from her peripheral vision she noticed I was glancing at her direction, to which she then decided to turn her head and look at me. I shat the bed and pretended to keep looking at the window for a couple of seconds and then went straight back to looking at my phone. She glanced at me a couple more seconds and that was that.
I regret not saying something to her right then and there. But she's been sitting near me since the start of semester and hasn't said a word either so... Anyways, IDK if i'm overthinking this, but she could sit anywhere but chooses to sit near me every time. Yet she's not smiling or initiating any conversations with me. From her demeanour I can tell she's the shy type.... keep reading on reddit ➡
It’s frustrating, but it took ages for a broad range of skin tones, more eye shapes, cultural clothing, etc. so I don’t know that it will ever be an in-game feature.
YES, I know there is a mod. But it doesn’t work very well for me. And as much as the Sims claims to be for in-game diversity, disabled people are extremely underrepresented in the game at all, and it hurts.
So, despite the mod, I believe this should be a BASE GAME FEATURE. We need wheelchairs, crutches, braces, casts, prosthetics. To do anything less would be a slap in the face. The former two would require a lot, I know, but the latter three would be as easy as coding clothing I feel like. Idk, I just feel the Sims team doesn’t care about us, or at the very least not enough to represent us fully in game :(.
EDIT: Added a comment I made below.
“I just want to add…
I AM ASKING FOR…
• Wheelchairs • Crutches • Canes • Prosthetics • Hearing aids • Literally a way for me to make myself and my friends in the game.
I AM NOT ASKING FOR…
• Representation of the horrible, gut-wrenching, depression that can come with disability. We don’t put murder and super violence in TS4 without mods for a reason. I don’t see why this would have to come with my sim getting to have a wheelchair. • Possibly insensitive representation with altered speech, etc. I know that could go wrong. • People to be forced to use these in the game. You’d have the option to never touch the features if you wanted.
I just want more time to be put into the disabled community than the animals in TS4, okay?
I also want to add, for everyone saying how much time and money it would take…
A.) This is a life-simulator. I am a human that exists and has a life. So do my friends.
B.) I LOVE TS4 SO MUCH, but you cannot lie that we pay so much money, HUNDREDS of dollars per person for features in this game. There is enough money, okay. There is. EA is not a victim.
C.) Evaluate inside yourself why you don’t think it’s worth it. What does that say about you? About your experience as a human being? About how you view others experiences?”
