I've seen a lot of posts all over social media condoning rioting and looting in the name of the cause...with the justification its not a big deal because they're covered by insurance, and financial damage doesn't matter in comparison to the broader issue of police injustice.
While property will of course never be as important as a life, the reality isn't really so simple.
It can be extremely difficult for small business owners to recover full damages from insurance. There is tons of paperwork, bureaucracy, and documentation involved...and often the insurance companies fight back on claims to reduce their liabilities. Sometimes owners don't have specific coverage policies that the damage/theft falls under, or theres some hidden exclusion. And given the current situation with so many businesses already struggling, most likely won't have adequate savings to ride it out until they're paid. This will be a death blow to many small businesses across America...along with the livelihoods of t... keep reading on reddit ➡
A lot of gravel trucks have decals that read “stay back 200ft” or “not responsible for damages” to deter people into thinking the company/driver isn’t liable for damages, but that isn’t true. Decals are not legally binding.
All drivers are responsible for securing their load. In the event that an unsecured load damages your vehicle, you should always take the driver’s license plate number.
Today had to leave a game, and it's not a big loss as it was very casually played mostly for fun and with inexperienced GM, which got a lot of leeway. But her logic finally broke me today.
Little background: We've been playing mixed party in original setting, wizard, warlock (played by GM), cleric and me, monk. Warlock got everyone annoyed by constantly making his patron interfere in party affairs, which got him many complaints, both IC and OOC. But hey, new GM, all that, no worries.
There came homeruled magic items, some characters, mainly wizard, got a few, cleric some, me none. Later got some +2 AC bracers, which was really underwhelming considering that I am a monk in a party with 10+ lvl wizard who has staff of power, some +AC and +saving throws homeruled artifact and can cast like nobody's business since GM allowed rest anytime. Again, fine, new GM, it happens, not like enemies were hard, wizard was able to solo them, and we just engaged in roleplay.
Then came the day other p... keep reading on reddit ➡
They've been deleting people posting screenshots of Mark Greenberg's FEC records showing the maximum donation to Donald Trump for the last hour or more on their Facebook page.
Why? I’m all for reducing the damage of kill clip and rampage if it means the base damage of weapon types gets boosted (maybe that could make it so other perks see the light of day), but just making weapons weaker and weaker along with perks is so disheartening. I don’t feel like I’m wielding a weapon from a crazy wish dragons taken underling, I feel like I’m using a potato gun. This is all exaggerated but you get the point.
Edit: Checking back on this post and it garnered a lot of attention, nice to know others share the same sentiment as I do. Also! Obligatory thank you kind stranger for the platinum.
So, I went back to Destiny 1 and ran around with a couple of weapons that all had one thing in common: They didn't have Crowd Control (Rampage) or Reactive Reload (Kill Clip). And you know what; I didn't miss them. Instead, I used more utility based perks, like Firefly (Dragonfly), Triple Tap, and Spray & Play (Alloy Mag, kinda) and so on.
There's been a lot of talk about nerfing the damage-reload combo and how weapons will behave moving forward, so I feel like I should pipe my 2 cents in. We've already sat through major changes to the damage perks, and now with the reload perks, which was a bit uncalled for.
So, why do we gravitate toward this holy combo? It's quite simple, actually.
Primary Weapon Damage is too low
It goes without saying that the reason why we like perks that boost our damage is because it feels like we aren't doing enough damage already.
Destiny 1 had this certain level of perk diversity because most of the best perks in the game didn't directly affec... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just to preface this by saying that my 3rd most played hero is Moira and that my flair is kind of a meme. I play all 3 roles equally and I'm also a Gengu main. Now that I got over this, let's start.
Blizzard went the wrong fucking direction with the Moira changes. In an effort to erase DPS Moiras from existence, something that only exists in low gold and below, they completely destroyed Moira at any level above plat. In fact, 40 dps is fucking hilariously bad and the lowest in game. I believe it does slightly more dps than fucking melee spam.
Let me tell you why DPS Moiras exist. It's not because of her damage, it's because of her easy aim requirements. I know it's a large beam or whatnot, but realistically, the average player will have practically perfect accuracy with it. I repeat, DPS Moiras exist in such quantities simply due to her easy mechanical skills. Look at Zen, or Bap, hell even Ana. They do more damage even if you land half your shots. Then why aren't Dps Zen/Bap/Ana a w... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I'm 20 and recently bought a house last July. I spent the next couple months renovating and moved in last December, into what was basically a brand new house. I had redone absolutely everything, most of it myself. Anyways, a couple months later in February my uncle came over, and I have no problem with him but I told him not to bring his child over, shes 6 and has a tendency to be way overactive and hyper and break things. I told him not to bring her over, yet he did anyways. Well she ended up ramming her dumbass little head straight through some drywall. She was okay because shes a child, but they left pretty soon after that. After I patched the drywall and painted the wall again I sent my uncle an invoice for the damage his child cost me, and he said it should be forgiven since it was a child who did it, not him. I told him his child is his responsibility until shes 18 and that means covering damages she causes, and that I dont want her over anymore until shes in her teens or at l... keep reading on reddit ➡
How is Ahri classified as an Assassin or as an mage
Assassins do a lot of dmg and snowballing until it they one shot everything and Mages scale up to the braindeadness
But Ahri is none of the two
Like pros are making jokes of Ahri... for example Perkz said she is a Morgana in Late Game, you charm people and hope it hits
Or Faker said that she is no longer a champion
Or the Chinese call Ahri "Tool Man" because Ahri can only be useful with a glacial argument
So what Riot wants to do with Ahri, they have to change something about her. It cannot be that she loses so much dmg because of her mobility, many Champs with a lot of mobility also have a lot of dmg, so why not Ahri?
I've had this discussion with a couple of friends previously and thought that people on here might also benefit from the answer.
It doesn't matter what an ability scales with, you have to read the actual ability to know what type of damage it does. Ezreal is a good example. All of his abilities somewhat scale with AD, but only his Q deals physical damage. This means an Ezreal that builds pure AD like most people do will still deal a moderate amount of magic damage just because his W, E and R, even if he builds AD, deals magic damage. This works vice versa.
Warwick is the best example I could come up with. It's common to build at least titanic hydra as an AD item on him, but a significant amount of his damage is magic. This is because his Q and R all scale with AD but in reality deal magic damage.
You probably already know this if you have some experience with the game but I see some newer players being confused which is why I made this post.

Dow to quarantine my sister-in-law sends her 9yo son to stay with me and my husband. Its was the best solution because she and her husband are both doctors.
My husband is a photographer and I am an editor and colourist. Because I worked from home in the quarantine I relocated my computer in a little room, which I and my husband didn't use. I have a very expensive computer and I didn't want my nephew even look at it. My husband told me that he was mischievous. I was met with the child only once, at our wedding, and he was pretty restless.
I have left the house for groceries with my husband. The kid was home alone just for a quarter-hour. He had open the room, that I have "hidden" my computer and somehow he had broken the hardware for the colour correction, one of three monitors and the mouse. All that cost around 2500$.
When I told my sister-in-law to cover at least the half cost, she responded that she wasn't her fault, that her son "is just a kid" and she doesn't have to pay me bac... keep reading on reddit ➡
This also applies to anyone wearing a belt of fire/cloud/storm giant strength. I'm suddenly amused by the prospect of giants playing basketball.
