Sounds like if you’re in the market for a CJ autograph you’re gonna be out of luck for awhile. Further tweets indicate handshakes are off the table as well.
Stay healthy out there r/nba, and wash y’all’s hands. 😷
Tied with only the Milwaukee Bucks & Los Angeles Lakers, the Kings have the best record in the league post All-Star break at 6-1. Along with that, Kings are 12-5 in their last 17 games.
Kings now have sole possession of 9th seed ahead of Blazers, Pelicans, and Spurs. The current 8th seed, Memphis, have gone 2-5 since All-Star break and have one of the hardest schedules left.
It's going to be a war zone from here on out with FIVE teams competing for the last spot in the West
Be mindful of the "Yeah but I'll quit/start _____ later," attitude. Thanks
Last weekend I posted explaining how VIX was building huge pressure and peeps were gonna get wasted (https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/f85rkh/volatility_plays/). This week the VIX hit its highest point in almost 9 YEARS and whaddya know... this weekend we're treated to a ton of converted gaylords who bought their puts on Friday morning hyping up every possible piece of beer virus noise to feel better about their poor choices in life. The same people who were somehow able to ignore every piece of beer virus news the five days between getting approved on RH to buy a gaytarded $200 MSFT FD and getting completely screwed to a 0$ account balance this week.
Here's what the chart looks like now: https://imgur.com/a/DM6kdBD
Guess what. You're about to get screwed again. That cash withdrawal you made on Friday from your credit card so you could buy a put? Probabl... keep reading on reddit ➡
Today I found my partners plan for breaking up with me - a dot point list. I called him and he came over and we talked. He said the spark is gone and I haven't done anything wrong, but he's been planning it for months. Part of his break up plan was getting me a cat so that when he's gone I won't be lonely.
I didn't know this when we got the cat. I thought we were making a commitment.
Now everytime I look at the poor thing I feel sick in my stomach. I love him to bits but having him around hurts so damn much.
I feel used. He's been telling me he loves me for months but hasn't meant it. In the meantime, I've cooked and cleaned and tried my best for him. I even cooked his entire family Christmas dinner.
He's dropped this bomb on me 2 weeks into my postgraduate degree and I feel like my world is crumbling. In a day I've gone from happy to financially unstable, unable to eat, drink, sleep and concentrate, and questioning every friendship I have because if he's lied to me for so long,... keep reading on reddit ➡
Throwaway for anonymity.
I (20s F) started a new office job a little over a month ago. Hours of 9-5, pay for 7.5 hours so there’s no pay for a 1/2 hour break. For the first while, I was not taking any break and leaving at 4:30. My supervisor pulled me aside after a couple weeks of that and said they would prefer I not do that unless I had an appointment as they wanted their employees to be there during the 9-5 period.
To me that kind of sucked but was fair enough. If they didn’t want me to leave until 5, I can respect that. So I started leaving at the typical time and taking 1/2 hour break in the day sometime between 12 and 2 instead.
Today at about 1:15 I was heading out the door for lunch when my supervisor stopped me and said she had a task she needed me to do. I told her I would do it once I got back as I was going for lunch. She looked confused. She said she thought I didn’t take a lunch break. I told her I wasn’t before as I was leaving early instead but as they didn’t want... keep reading on reddit ➡
Players expecting Bungie to cater so a small subset of players who don't put the game down (relatively speaking), is not only unreasonable, it's also impossible. Expecting them to build a game for someone who treats it like a full time job is just not realistic.
If anyone has burnt through the content and run out of enjoyable things to do then just walk away and put the game down.
Coming from a player who has fluctuated between hardcore and casual since D1 beta....and someone who has been upset about content droughts in the past. But sometimes it's healthier just to put the game down and experience life outside the screen
EDIT: This post was not made to say that either side (casual/hardcore) doesn't matter. I wish that everyone could be happy and entertained all the time, but once again, that's just not a reasonable request. I love this game as much as anyone else, but we all need to set reasonable expectations (just like in life) and play/appreciate the game for what it's... keep reading on reddit ➡
True Shooting calculated out of 213 points, 139 fga and 49 fta over 7 games. This also means that LBJ's has been shooting 7 Free Throws per game over that stretch, a 1.4 increase in attempts compared to his season averages. It's a small sample size but LeBron has been hot these past few weeks.
He's shooting 75.5%FT during that stretch which is pretty good for LeBron this season.
He also only shoots 30% from 3 in those games but his % took a hit when he shot 1/7 from 3 last night. Really speaks to how dominant he has been in the paint recently as his TS is absurdly good right now (and I double-checked the numbers. Still feel like I might be wrong lol).
I've (27f) known this guy (31m) for a couple of years, but we really started hanging out about 4 months ago, so it's not like its been long enough to get super serious. I was always attracted to him but thought he wouldn't be interested so I basically ignored him. I was very pleasantly surprised when he made a move 4 months ago!! We started hanging out several times a week and really hit it off!
There were no bad vibes at all. We had a lot in common, both single parents, both financially independent homeowners, we share some obscure interests, similar music taste. Hell our personalities are even very similar. We're both really laid back, easy going introverts. And the thing I liked about him the most is that we agreed about the type of relationship we wanted: very egalitarian, sexually open, respectful of each others privacy and alone time, and with no expectation that we will ever cohabitate or get married etc. Not constantly checking up on each other or making demands of each other... keep reading on reddit ➡
I deal with insurance companies for a living. Adjusters often deny or delay benefits. For instance, I just had a Medpay adjuster try to delay benefits because the medical bills didn’t have CPT codes. I demanded the policy, which my client has an absolute right to have since it’s his own damn policy, and the adjuster just paid the benefits instead. I figured there wasn’t anything in the policy requiring CPT codes so I pushed back and the adjuster immediately caved.
Always ask for your policy, which is a written contract. That defines your and your insurer’s rights and obligations. It says when you’re entitled to benefits and what hoops you have to jump through to get them.
Edit: I've seen many folks mention the same thing so I'll address some of it here.
(1) Before I went to sleep a guy told me to clarify a particular point and I should have. Sorry. My example about CPT codes is for Medpay, which can also be known as PIP, which is a no-fault coverage for bodily injuries that you or... keep reading on reddit ➡
Rapists are sick in the head. Simply telling them rape is wrong wont stop them. They need serious mental help. It is simply irresponsible to tell people to teach "boys not to rape" rapists are not normal thinking people. They don't listen to morals and reason. It is way more advantageous to teach people to defend themselves then it is to hope that telling someone not to rape will magically cure a rapist. Defence and psychiatric help for rapists is a great combo. Simply telling a rapist rape is wrong is not good enough.
In case you didn't know, Oda became sick recently.
However, there shouldn't be anything to worry about (As Greg said), and is most likely fine already. (Since Authors are 2-3 chapters ahead of what comes out in the Weekly Shonen Jump, so a problem for this chapter means it happened 2-3 weeks ago already).
But as a result, there is an unscheduled break. And the next chapter of One Piece will be officially released on March 8th.
##Here is the official statement : https://twitter.com/Eiichiro_Staff/status/1233322935072350208
> Due to a sudden illness of its author, ONE PIECE story will be temporarly interrupted for Weekly Shonen Jump #14 (in stores from march 2nd). The author has now fully recovered, and the story will continue from Jump #15 onwards. Thank you for your understanding.
In the meantime, we will soon have the Result of Best o... keep reading on reddit ➡
A half-dozen police cars crowded the gravel driveway, their headlights lighting up a row of trees. The gnarled shadows they threw against the walls of the farmhouse swayed gently in the breeze.
I pulled my hair back into a ponytail as I stepped over a line of yellow police tape. I didn’t want to be accused of contaminating any evidence. A young officer eyed me suspiciously as I approached the house, but let me pass through the front door.
He knew why I was there.
I found Jack’s corpse in the upstairs bedroom, the blood from his self-inflicted gunshot wound still wet and sticky. Detective Marston, a thin balding man, stood in the corner of the room writing something in a notebook.
“Hello Jane,” he said as I stepped through the doorway. “I’m surprised you didn’t beat me here.”
I ignored the comment, squatting down near Jack’s body. Most of his head was missing, and a thick iron scent hung in the air. The old man wore a pair of blue overalls now spackled with blood. A piece of paper... keep reading on reddit ➡
