WINNERS HAVE NOW BEEN DRAWN AND 50 KEYS WERE GIVEN TO LOVELY REDDITORS IN THIS SUB WITH A FURTHER 250 GIVEN AWAY ON STREAM!
I can’t even begin to express how blown away I was by everyone’s kind words and generosity! Truly, thankyou!
The Christmas season is upon us, as such I have about 100 (112 at the time of counting) steam keys that I need to get rid of ranging anywhere from a couple dollars to $90 AUD.
I have decided that since my steam stats indicate Ive only opened something like 4% of my games, its clear I don't need them. Instead I came to the decision that I would give them away at random to try and spread some fun during a time when its needed most.
As such I will be giving away a random Steam key to 10 random users from this sub. All you need to do is comment to enter the giveaway. Depending on the popularity of the post I may increase the amount of keys distributed but it will be 10 at least!
My goal here is to give as many of these away as I can as quite frankly I don't need them and I want to avoid dribbling them out when I know so many people are needing a distraction right now.
In addition I will be hosting a stream on Twitch at 8PM ACST on Friday 18/12 in which all viewers are invited to join a game of marbles where several entrants will win random steam keys! (If you aren't familiar with marbles but are interested I guarantee it is incredibly simple and requires nothing but your presence!

Important: I want to be very clear in saying that you are not required or expected to follow/cheer/sub in any way whatsoever. Everyone has the same chance. I would go as far as to say I would advise you to avoid following unless you genuinely like the content or my personality as this isn't me trying to farm follows. I just wanted to do something good in a time its needed most.
This is also my second time running something like this as I've found myself in a pretty fortunate situation during the pandemic and wanted to do what I can to spread some positivity and distractions so if you've seen something similar by me before you know that this is genuine. This will make my total keys given away this year well over 300 which has been incredibly fun to do!
Edit: Massive shout out to the kind souls who have messaged me with extra keys of their own to give away! I’m blown away by how many kind people are... keep reading on reddit ➡
I hope the devs brush off all the hate and see this game still has great potential to be loved by many once they fix some things.
This is actually question my daughter posed and I’m pretty stumped. She asked how, if two people with (let’s say) perfect pitch sing a song, how is it possible that we can still tell who is singing when the notes would be identical?
Note: I know absolutely nothing about music, but figured this was the best place to ask for her.
Edit: Wow, many of these answers are incredible! I had no idea this would receive such in depth and thoughtful feedback. I have learned a huge amount. I was not exaggerating above when I said I know nothing about music (I don’t even know what pitch is - just quoted my daughter on that) and I’m grateful to those of you who took the time to help me learn.
First and foremost, wow; I did not expect my story to blow up as much as it did. I was shocked to wake up this morning to see that The DailyHodl published a feature covering what had happened. Over the past 24 hours, I’ve gotten dozens of DM’s of people asking me questions, requesting interviews, and most importantly—wanting clarification. If you don’t know what the heck I’m even talking about, feel free to look at my account’s recent post history.
#1: Proof and Clarification
Although the vast majority of people responded positively to my previous post, some were skeptical about the legitimacy of what was said. There were comments asking how I managed to sell all 127 Bitcoins in just one day when even the largest exchanges have limits well under $100K/day of how much BTC you can trade on their platform.
As mentioned in my initial post, I was at my grandpa’s house for around a week for the holidays. The day I found my private keys was December 22nd. I spent the next week figuring out how to safely and securely liquidate such a large amount of Bitcoin for the cheapest price possible (in terms of fees). I quickly realized this was not possible by simply opening up a regular account on Coinbase or Binance and selling my crypto through there. Not only would it take forever due to the daily withdrawal limits, but at the time I was also worried that the price of Bitcoin would suffer a major drop throughout the lengthy liquidation process. Of course, hindsight is 20/20 because Bitcoin is roughly $41,000 as I’m writing this.
Anyway, as the days went on I was able to find the most optimal solution which was to sell the assets through an OTC Principal Desk. I went back and forth between different companies and ultimately ended up selling all 127 Bitcoins for a price of $33,439.02 per coin minus a 0.15% fee. The net was roughly $4.24 million.
I received the wire Thursday morning. I’ve gotten countless requests to provide a screenshot for further verification, so I logged into my Ally Bank app on my phone and did exactly that. I had to scribble out the title of the transaction for privacy because it shows the company I dealt with and another piece of personal info. The same thing goes for my account number.
#2: What I Would’ve Done Differently
Many different intense emotions were hitting me every single day for the past few weeks ever since this had happened. Initially, the number one thing on m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Most people I know that are Christian are low key terrifying. They are very insistent in their beliefs and always try to convince others that they are wrong or they are going to hell. They want to control how everyone else lives (at least in the US). It's creeps me out and has caused me to have a low option of them. Plus there are so many organization is related to them that are designed to help people, but will kick them out for not believing the same things.
No Karen, being a work-from-home phone spammer for some shitty power company doesn't make you a critical part of our country's infrastructure.

Had this random shower thought the other day. Say I survived some apocalyptic event that wiped out all of humanity but damaged no major infrastructure. Are any of these scenarios possible (and if so, for how long):
Could I keep potable water running through the pipes?
Could I break into a power plant and maintain electricity output?
Could I keep the Internet running? Would certain sites become inaccessible?
If there was another survivor, could I call them on a cell phone?
