What do you think the 2020 December boss battle will be?
I did a AMA back in December 30, 2019 about how I was suffering from locked in syndrome. This time I want people to ask me anything about my recovery in all aspects physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Also how I am able to push forward when everyone told me it would be imposs
I was diagnosed with a terminal progressive disease called Toxic Acute Progressive Leukoencephalopathy. This put me into locked in syndrome and hospice for six months.
Here are some facts about what happened:
Memorial Day weekend 2017, I was diagnosed with Acute Toxic Progressive Leukoencephalopathy. There is no way to prove what caused my illness. The only thing they know for sure is that it was from inhaling a toxin. This disease is nicknamed chasing the Dragon syndrome, I used to smoke heroin on tinfoil, odds are it was a cutting agent.
This is my recovery journey from Locked-in syndrome (LIS), also known as pseudocoma. It is a condition in which a patient is aware but cannot move or communicate verbally due to complete paralysis of nearly all voluntary muscles in the body except for vertical eye movements and blinking.
I will be making video posts as I was getting sicker leading up to me being locked in and then my miraculous recovery.
Everyone thought I was “Brain dead”

No, Nintendo hasn't sold 4.2m Switch units in March 2020 alone. Nintendo's official quarterly reports state the Switch sold 3.29m units between December 31st 2019 and March 31st 2020.
tl;dr: Official Nintendo quarterly reports show Nintendo Switch sold 3.29 million units between December 31st 2019 and March 31st 2020. In January 2020 Nintendo reported Switch had sold 52.48 million consoles worldwide as you can check in articles which covered the news like these from IGN or Gematsu. In april they presented their last fiscal year report where they shared Switch had sold 55.77 million consoles by March 31st 2020, which means it sold 3.29 million units between December 31st 2019 to March 31st 2020.

In December 2011, David Stern vetoed a trade that would send Chris Paul to Lakers in a 3 team trade. Stern was worried about a ownerless small market Hornets team losing their only good player and a super team forming in Los Angeles after the league was just coming out of a lockout
ESPN Article from 2011
> "There was a trade that [New Orleans general manager] Dell Demps wanted us to approve, and I said heck no," Stern said, "but he had told [Rockets GM] Daryl Morey and [then Lakers GM] Mitch Kupchak he had authority to do it, and he didn't. I said no. We just settled a lockout, and you want me to approve a basketball trade?"
> Stern explained he felt the return package—Lamar Odom, Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Goran Dragic and a 2012 first-rounder—wasn't enough for a player of Paul's caliber.
> "I did it because I was protecting the then-Hornets," Stern said. "... To this day everyone always asks me, 'Well why did you keep Chris Paul from going to the Lakers?' I didn't keep him. I didn't approve the trade. No team sells or trades a future Hall of Famer without the owner signing off, and I was the owner's rep."
This is Dr. Li Wenliang. He was the Chinese doctor who warned his colleagues about coronavirus in December 2019 but was subsequently silenced by the government and eventually passed away from the virus. May we honor his memory during this fight!

Should Niantic clarify before the CD Pokémon poll how Blastoise's move will be determined when evolved on December CD if it wins and now gets Aura Sphere as a second CD move?
As it stands now, Squirtle actually has a chance of winning the second place in this weekend's Twitter vote, which would mean there will be a second Squirtle CD in July. Which makes me wonder: if Squirtle really gets a second CD move, which attack will Blastoise get when evolved next December? Will it be random between Hydro Cannon and Aura Sphere? That would be horrible and unfair: if you have bad luck and you don't get the desired move, you might be forced to use an Elite TM, which, as of now, is a valuable item. I think it would be the right thing to do for Niantic to clarify this before actually posting the poll. It may change how some people will make their decision, and Niantic has a chance to avoid making some people angry in the aftermath for once.

I got store credit for cancelled NBA game tix that expires in December 2020. Seems incredibly unfair given there will be no spectators at NBA games between now and then.
My best bro is a huge 76ers fan and as a Christmas gift, I bought us some lower-level tickets to the 76ers-wizards game that was supposed to happen in April but was cancelled due to COVID-19.
I asked for a credit card chargeback like people here said to do for the tickets and received the emails below giving me store credit instead of a refund. Now I get a voucher for the ticket value that expires in 6 months. There is absolutely no guarantee that there will be spectators allowed at sports from now until then; especially with respect to basketball where the playoffs will have no live fans and the next season almost 100% certainly won't begin until after December 8.
I know that you're supposed to know all the terms and conditions when you buy things and I should have known that when I bought the tickets, the cancellation policy would result in store credit rather than a refund. BUT! That normally wouldn't matter because I could go to a different NBA game with that money instead.

Nikole Betterson-missing since December 1977 when she was 2 years old from Dearborn, Michigan- “By the time you get this, we should be dead. Jarrett is about to go to jail and I don't want to live without him.”
On Labor Day weekend in 1977, Jarrett Betterson suddenly lost control of his vehicle which rolled several times before finally coming to a stop. In the car were his girlfriend, Susan Klingel, and their young daughter Nikole. Jarrett and Nikole were not seriously injured but Susan died in the accident. Police wanted to charge Jarrett with vehicular homicide as marijuana was found in the car but no charges were ever brought due to a “sloppy investigation.” Soon after, Jarrett had a new girlfriend, Barbara, and the two decided to move and take Nikole with them out west. Shortly before leaving Dearborn, Michigan around Christmas in 1977, Barbara promised Susan’s parents, Bill and Mary Klingel, she would be a good mother to Nikole shortly. Bill and Mary cried as they said goodbye to their 2-year old granddaughter. Jarrett and Barbara did not exactly say where they were going mentioning to some friends they were going to Las Vegas and to other friends that they were heading to California. H

Do you believe some of the people who say they had coronavirus in January or even December?
I've been seeing a lot of people who had an experience that had led them to believe they had the coronavirus as early back as December.
I too have had a similar experience. Back in early January my chest started hurting one day. I chalked it up to a cold, although I had just recovered from a cold a month prior. 2 days later I left work to go to the ER because I was having extreme difficulties breathing and had a very deep dry cough that caused me physical pain. Flu test was negative. They X-rayed my lungs but never told me the results. Then did a rapid strep test and said I had strep. Never said what my lung problem was.
It all cleared up in a total of about 5 days with lingering chest soreness for a few days after that.
Within 24 hours of my ER visit, my wife became severely sick. High fever, deep dry cough, trouble breathing. Went to the ER. No flu, no strep (even though I had it apparently). They said they didn't know what it was. Told her it was bronchitis and sent her home wit

For the first time since December, I had a positive sexual experience :)
In December I was sexually assaulted. It took a while to accept that. And as such everytime I even got aroused I ended up crying. It's not been easy.
But tonight I masturbated and I didn't cry. I'm a long way off okay. I need to face it better but I think I'm slowly getting there and y'know I'm proud of myself. I just wanted to tell someone :)

Market is back to December 2019 lows. Where it was when 40 million more people were employed. S&P 500 PE ratio is at Dot-com Buble levels. Spy 500 12/21 for sure.
Mod approved/r/FI contest: Guess what the S&P500 will close at on December 31st, 2020.
I have explicit permission of the mods to run this contest.
In the spirit of the Bogleheads contest, and in light of the extreme market volatility we are seeing this year, I thought it would be useful to hold a contest of our own. This is to demonstrate the fallacy of market timing and forecasting So:
In a comment below, submit your guess as to what the S&P500 will close at on December 31st, 2020
The winner (i.e. who guesses the closest) will get reddit gold, a youtube video of me reading out your name and calling you a mang, and other possible prizes.
Lets have fun and see to gets the closest!
Edit: Aannnd I missed a space between "approved and "/r/FI" in the title like a total choad.

> If Malfurion never intervened, and Illidan succeeded - the Forsaken would not have existed. Who knows what effect an obliterated Frozen Throne could have had. It could have unleashed an Old God or opened a gateway to some Deathrealm. As well as flood much of Azeroth.
Had there been speculation that the Frozen Throne was guarding a portal? From what I remember, even Pyromancer did not go so far (although he did anticipate the glass ceiling breaking).
