In my universe mode instead of a money in the bank ppv (Because let's be honest they are buggy) i have a roster wide king of the ring tournament each year and i have the finals be for the Million Dollar title at the KOTR PPV in May, the Holder of the title at is able to cash it in and compete for their brands world heavyweight title at Summmerslam in August until then though it is treated as a real title and is able to be Defended on RAW, Smackdown or at a PPV and the holder of the belt at the week before SS cashes it in for the Summerslam title match.
I feel like it makes the Summerslam main event feel like a big deal and it's a fun way to use a tournament (Because i love tournaments) ..Does anyone else use the Million Dollar belt as a active championship?
It doesn’t matter to me if 10% abuse a system meant to help people, or if even 90% abuse it. As long as the people who need help get it.
Human decency is the ability to see others as, well, human. I don’t give a shit why or how people are on wellfare. I don’t give a shit if they are grifters (statistically they are not). I don’t give a shit if they are addicts or recovering addicts, if they are poor and working 3 jobs or poor and working no jobs, if they are disabled in some capacity, I just don’t give a flying fuck. I give a flying fuck if that person is cold, or hungry, though, because that person is still a fucking person, regardless of all circumstances. And I have this weird idea that people deserve dignity and respect and I dunno, being seen and treated as human beings.
Edit: Woah my angry rant blew up a bit. Wack. I just want to say a few things, this will probably get me called a “virtue singular” (?? What is that) but yes, if I see a homeless person near my house, I’ll ge... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm very ignorant about the situation, and how this all works, so I figured I should ask.
Long time lurker here, first time poster. Hopefully it fits.
My work involves me having to install hardware in all of my employers assets. This makes me fairly unavailable for all my other responsibilities, but it only happens on occasion so its normally no big deal. It only gets costly if I'll be away for extended amounts of time.
As it so happens we acquired another project a couple states away in New Mexico, so I needed to go on site for a week or two to get all the assets in line. I drive the ~14 hours to get on site and arrive on a Monday only to find out that my cell provider has no towers in the area, so my phone is effectively a high tech rolodex. I tell them I'll need them to pick me up a little prepaid phone on whatever network works best in the area. I'm not picky, I just need a crappy $100 phone for the next two weeks. They tell me they'll have it waiting on me in the office Tuesday morning.
The thing about my job is I typically answer to no one besides the owner of the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey millennials, think your prospects are bad now? Just wait until you are soon paying $10 for a candy bar.
He challenged Bernie on this twice during the debate last night, and Bernie did not challenge the assertion, or give any new explanation to explain the massive gap. I found a transcript of the exchange, here it is:
>PETE: But I'm actually less concerned about the lack of transparency on Sanders' personal health than I am about the lack of transparency on how to pay for his health care plan, since he's said that it's impossible to even know how much it's going to cost, and even after raising taxes on everybody making $29,000, there is still a multi-trillion-dollar hole.
>As a matter of fact, if you add up all his policies altogether, they come to $50 trillion. He's only explained $25 trillion worth of revenue, which means that the hole in there is bigger than the size of the entire economy of the United States. The time has come to level with the American people on matters personal and on matters of policy.

You are not a 3 dollar agent....You are an agent. One of us. You have made the choice to activate and join us in our mission.
Regardless of when, why, or how much you spent, the dollar figure does not matter. We welcome you with open arms and are here to assist you in any way we can. Some of us have been activated as far back as the second wave in New York. Some of us were part of the initial excursion into DC. And some of us, like myself, both New York and DC. Regardless of when, why, or how much for us, we were all newly activated agents at some point.
Please dont feel devalued based on a title of being a "3 dollar agent". You are our 3rd wave, our companions and again, one of us.
Welcome all, to The Division.
EDIT: Holy crap this blew up quick!! Thank you all for the rewards. Wow. I was only making our new agents feel welcomed and to see the support is fantastic! I wish I could share the rewards with all veteran and new agents. You guys are awesome! Thank you again!

I hope this letter reaches you with haste,
You didn't need to rush in and purchase the ENTIRE stock of hand sanitizer. You ignored every person who politely asked if we could have just ONE to buy for ourselves, our FAMILIES. Nope, you just rushed up to checkout and retreated back into whatever hole you crawled out of.
You didn't NEED 60 fucking bottles of it! There were 10 other people trying to purchase some as well! You selfish, ignorant, waste of oxygen.
I hope you live a long and difficult life. I hope when this is all over, you think about all the people you dicked, just so you could have a stockpile of hand sanitizer. I hope you forever step upon legos in the dark and I hope your pets forever piss on your furniture. Most of all, I hope your precious hand sanitizer tails you. You deserve it. I know Karma will catch up to you eventually, all I have ever wanted for the past day is for you to remember us when that time finally comes. Remember all those faces and fami... keep reading on reddit ➡
I took out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked,"If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" I asked.
"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said.."I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on hunting equipment?" I asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't gone hunting in 20 years!"
"Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?
I replied, "Don't worry about that. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and hunting."

I’m Nick Leeson, today is my birthday.
It is also 25 years ago today since I broke the UK’s oldest merchant bank with illegal losing trades of over 1.4 billion dollars and the phrase, ‘Rogue Trader’ was coined.
I was 28, the place was Singapore, and the bank was the Queen's own Barings PLC.
Things went bad fast, two days prior I fled Singapore and faxed back a note to the bank with just the words “I’m sorry”
I realised how bad, when waking up at the Shangri La Hotel in Kota Kinabalu. The Asian Wall Street Journal had been slid under the door, picking it up, the front-page headline re... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have a giant family. My mom and my dad both have a lot of siblings and they’re also both the youngest in their families. This means I’m nearly the youngest of over 20 cousins. We all live close so we throw gigantic family get togethers. All the time.
My grandparents own a pretty big ranch just outside of town. They’re not rich by any means, but land is cheap out here and they’ve owned the property for a long time. Because these gatherings sometimes attract upwards of 40 people, their ranch has been the venue of choice for as long as I can remember.
My uncles are all stereotypically masculine dudes, as are a lot of my older cousins, so our rendezvous generally revolve around sports, grilling, and gambling. Gambling isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but I participate for the sake of being social. I usually lose a fair bit of money because I don’t play cards or know sports teams as well as everybody else. It’s gotten to the point where it’s become a reoccurring joke amongst family members.... keep reading on reddit ➡
it just seems pretty sad that that people threw tons of money at an old church with a shitty history. Many people argued that rebuilding it was not worth it and the 1 billion could have been used to actually help France.
meanwhile, half a billion animals have died as Australia burns, where are all the donations now? it's pretty telling that religious people care more about an old empty building then actual life.
EDIT: wow, thanks for the gold and silver, I didn't even imagine this would blow up. I shall pay the gold and silver forward and donate to the Australian red cross again.
Churches VERY often use that logic. “Give through faith and God will multiply your offering”. It’s this same (twisted) line of thinking that entice multimillionaire televangelists to solicit money from their viewers (that they don’t even have) with the promise of “God will give it back to you, and then some”. The issue here? If churches REALLY believed that “giving in faith” would bring about abundant rewards, then churches all over the world would be SCRAMBLING to give away as much money as possible: God’s just gonna give it back, and then some, right? Right.

I casually play a bit of Fifa. My son, also likes to play a bit of Fifa. He has his own account. Recently hes started going onto my account to play because i have better players. This is without my knowledge. Anyway, one thing leads to another and i've lost 500 dollars in fifa points the last week. I got in touch with ea help about the issue. And they are now threatening to ban my account because of this. I have a Origin premiere membership, and have spent hours progressing in other games aside from fifa like battlefront. Apparently what i did was "game sharing" and i therefore broke their terms of service. Absolutely f**ing ridiculous
EDIT: Still talking to 'Deepak' on EA help. He says they have made an exception in my case regarding to the Fifa points. Asked him what that mean but they were vague and wouldn't give me a straight answer. Anyone know what that means?

How is this one different than the other “I just crossed $1,000,000” posts?
I did a Q3’2019 Spending update a few months ago. Based on the feedback of that post, rather than just review my Q4 2019 spending, I did a full year review: this breaks down my spending, my income, my investments, and a brief pro/con of places I lived.
This is my first reddit post ever, so please bear with me. I have found myself in a bit of a financial pickle.
I am in my early 30's and earn about $180,000/yr. I was quite reckless with my money. I finished school at the age of 23 with a 150k/yr salary. Promptly bought a $850k house and a sports car. Promoted to ~$300k over the next six years but couldn't handle the position with my personal issues. Poor money management and substance abuse lead to where I am now. I am $1.1m in debt.
My debt load is very high.... $150k owed to family (borrowed for first house), $45k CC debt (on debt repayment plan at 5% for 48 months), ~$65k HELOC (Mortgage upside down, valuation $350k less than purchase price, making min payments @ 3.5%?).
Primary residence ~$1500 in monthly expenses (mortgage, insurance, tax, utilites...) joint ownership with spouse, I pay half of the total ~$3000 month. Owe ~$300k on house, value ~$400k.
Rental property is ~$4800 in monthly expenses. $3300 in rent... keep reading on reddit ➡
Took a huge order ($630) to a large event and the lady had the audacity to write zero in the tip line for an order that fed 100 plus people and she said she appreciated me. Fuck you lady and your shit tip.
Some people still aren't getting it. I tell them what I said in the title of this post. I also tell them that I pray to God that they are somehow right.
