EDIT 2: oh my god, I did not expect this much of a response. I’ve read all the messages I could, and most all of them were so kind and helpful, thank you so so much. I can’t respond to all of you, but I just want to say you all have been giving me hope where it was fading. Thank you.
EDIT: I want to thank every single person who commented on this post. I hadn’t realized how not normal his behavior was. I’m going to go stay with my best friend a few states away, she was furious when I told her what happened. Thank you all
My dad gets very territorial about food. Like ridiculously so. I (24f) wasn’t super hungry for dinner tonight, but my mom (56) made lamb, spanakopita and homemade tzatziki sauce. So I sat down and had a good amount, and decided to save the rest of my portion of lamb to make a super yummy sandwich for lunch tomorrow.
My dad (59) plowed through his plate (whole piece of lamb, four spanakopita, huge helping of couscous), and then half of my mom’s lamb. Then he reached over the table and jabbed his fork onto my plate, stabbing my remaining half piece of lamb and asked “are you going to eat that?” One, ew. Don’t touch my food with your dirty fork. Two, rude.
I nodded and said, “I’m going to make a lamb sandwich for lunch tomorrow, since I’m already full.” He glared at me so hard I shrunk in my seat. (He yelled at me a lot when I was a kid and I’m still working through that)
He released my lamb and pouted like an angry toddler for the rest of the meal. (My mom was still eating and I stayed for conversation) I tried to continue conversation with my mom but she went quiet on me too, and so I was very confused because it was just a piece of lamb? If he’s going to give me the silent treatment over it he can fucking have it like Jesus.
So I told him if he really wanted it he could have it. I didn’t see what the big deal was. He slammed his hand down on the table, and mocked my voice, “I’m going to make a sandwhicccchhhhh! I think you just have the power to say no to me, so you did!” I was bewildered, I’d wanted a lamb sandwich but it wasn’t like I was purposefully trying to steal food away from him? I mean I’d just relented and told him he could have it and he’s still throwing a tantrum? So I just excused mysel... keep reading on reddit ➡
Don’t get me wrong, steak is really good. But lamb has this really odd after taste that I just can’t wrap myself around. And I love it. Beef is overrated and lamb is more of a luxury I find.
Edit: beef in general. In my opinion anyway. I also meant mutton.
Edit no2 : I meant the adult sheep. Not the lamb.
Events in chronological order:
Create Robinhood app to get a lot of fresh money into the market, and blatantly use the data on that fresh money to always stay ahead of those lowly 'retail' traders
That creates a class divide in the market that is easy to discern because it's largely just people on robinhood. at least enough to use to manipulate the market
Due to this easy divide, the hegies ensure the game already has fail-safes they can use to minimize their risk in a situation where they are squeezed.
(here's the fun one) When the tits on their scheme do in fact go up and they get squeezed, they create a single very bad actor to put all the blame on. Robinhood can't be subject to regulatory actions if they are already bankrupt from class action suits. or vice versa. Robinhood was enough of those lowly 'retail' investors that they could use it to manipulate the market with it and then sacrifice that one company and still get off.
You have to wonder how much of that was always the plan. Was robinhood always nothing more than a setup to take our money and protect them from being squeezed?
and if you notice my use of quotes on the 'retail' investors- it's because im fucking sick of hearing boomer outlets call us that. We are fucking investors just like the people who work on wall street. is our money not green?
22/7/1. Can we expect this production ROS? No Oladipo, no Caris, no Warren. He was an add last year too with Oladipo out and was still serviceable with Warren on the court. Or is he a sell high?
I remember when Kindred was first teased and introduced, I was really hyped. I have to admit that I like Wolf a bit more than Lamb off tops, but I was still stoked to see how such an idea as Kindred could be translated into a player champion.
They did a good job, I think. Since it is two entities, it can't be easy to make a single character play in a way that properly reflects both without one being more prominent than the other.
And the thing is, I think they did make that mistake. Because when I play Kindred, it feels more like I'm playing 'Lamb'. Seriously, look at the ultimate. Its even named after Lamb specifically. Neither should have dominion over the other. They're stated as the 'twin essences' of death. Lamb being a more merciful and peaceful death for those that accept their fate while Wolf is the more violent death for those that refuse their fate and attempt to flee. But regardless, both are equally important.
Yet Kindred in game just feels like Lamb, Lamb, Lamb. You're just lamb, wolf is simply tacked on. He's outright excluded from Kindred's ultimate and honestly, is completely contradicted by the ultimate entirely. Maybe I misread the lore, but I honestly don't recall ever reading anything that even so much as hint to Lamb being able to give temporary immortality to those around them.
With all the talks about Reworks and such, I kinda hope they revist Kindred. Wolf deserves better. I honestly kinda want to see them make Kindred similar to Kayne, where you can opt to be either Lamb or Wolf by fulfilling some sort of conditions. Maybe at the start of the game, you decide if you want to be Lamb or Wolf? Lamb being what we have now while Wolf is something akin to Warwick, if I had to make an immediate comparison? A melee champion of some sort. No sustain needed, but probably an assassin-wolf. Idunno.
But yeah. As much as I love Kindred in concept, I feel like the champion itself falls just short of the fantasy that their lore created. But who knows, maybe I'm alone in feeling this way.
Edit: for clarity, look at the kit. Wolf is only really involved in W and E. Lamb is involved in Q, E (she has to do 3 autos for Wolf) and R. Why is the ULTIMATE only Lamb? Kindred's ultimate should involve both in some way.
Also someone pointed out the irony that we're primarily controlling Lamb. Who in the Lore is the merciful, peaceful death aspect. But this game is about combat, so it technically would make more sense if w... keep reading on reddit ➡
