Update 4: Epic is now suing google too.
Update 3: Fortnite has now been removed from the google play store as well. The Play store link is now unavailable.
Googles statement released to news outlets:
> The open Android ecosystem lets developers distribute apps through multiple app stores. For game developers who choose to use the Play Store, we have consistent policies that are fair to developers and keep the store safe for users. While Fortnite remains available on Android, we can no longer make it available on Play because it violates our policies. However, we welcome the opportunity to continue our discussions with Epic and bring Fort... keep reading on reddit ➡
Edit: I didn’t use any dialogue in my post because this is a court ruling, not my opinion.
edit: stop giving me awards, donate your money to debunking flat-earthers or supporting lobbyists who are trying to fix this bullshit healthcare system.
edit: I'm giving silver to every comment that rocks and would be helpful so look for silver comments. i'm not an expert but there are lawyers and credit counselors chiming in so check their content!
edit 2: I kept getting asked questions about ambulance and I knew there was something I wanted to remember. I finally dug through the old training manual I had created and now I remember - Ambulance billing SHOULD work the same as those below as far as disputes etc.. The exception that I remembered was: the reason people were going into collections CONSTANTLY for ambulance visits, was because ambulance billing is different. They send the check for the ambulance amount to the patient directly, so the patient will pay the ambulance bill - and then the patients would cash that check, and never pay the ambulance bill, and then get put into co... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sure feels good to not be a pirate -_-
I(15f) used to live with my older sister(22f) because my parents abandoned us and I was abused by my aunt.
5 years later our parents come back wanting me to live with them and I refused since my sister was more caring then both of them combined. Well they took us to court and somehow got her legal guardianship removed and now my parents have full custody of me. I hate both of them and don’t see them as family after what I was put through because of them.
They took my phone so I can’t talk to her(writing this on my iPad) and I feel like my entire life has just been flipped upside down. What should I do
edit: just bought the hat off amazon. this is happening. yolo.
Is there anything I can do to get this stuff off of social media? It's ridiculous some of the shit I see when I go look at her page. She posted a bunch of information from a trust that I'm a part of, and some of the sentences she highlights are concerning. She posted one such legal document that was trust fund information about money I will either inherit or have given to me at some age (I have no idea because I try to just ignore that and live my life like I have zero money coming to me later in life, because for all I know my mom will figure out a way to take it all anyways). It has my full name written multiple times, and the thing that is concerning is she highlighted a segment that says "In the event of the death of u/abstractivities" and I just have no fucking idea where her mind is at when she's highlighting stuff like that. She's posted stuff accusing my family of encouraging my cousin to commit suicide, saying my grandparents should be charged with manslaughter because my cous... keep reading on reddit ➡
A guy in my parking garage was parking in a way that blocked me and my family from accessing the entry door, forcing us to walk around to use a door further away. I left a note on his car asking him to park so we could get through. I did not curse or use any threatening language but looking back I could have been nicer in tone. He continued to park so we could not use the door.
After a few months of this, I emailed the management and HOA about the parking issue but never got a response back. I thought my email might have gone to spam and the manager's office did not allow visitors to come in due to social distancing so I printed out the letters and left them outside the doors of the board members apartment. I only did this because I received no email response despite my multiple emails to the management and board after a week. The Board meeting was the next day so I did not have time to mail the letters which I would have done if I had more time. I specifically wrote on the top of th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hanging out a friends house and heard sirens. Stick my head out the window to see what was going on.
State trooper pulled into the street from the north side cutting a car off. A black male exited the vehicle with his arms over his head, the primary officer who cut him off stayed in his vehicle for approx 30 seconds until more state troopers arrived from the other side of the road.
The primary officer and the first on scene rushed the suspect, threw him to the ground, then one of the officers straight up punched the suspect right in the face while he was laying down being handcuffed by the other officer.
They pulled him up, and moved him to the first officer on the scenes vehicle, then 30ish minutes later an officer actually entered the suspects vehicle and drove off with it. The other state troopers followed.
I don’t think any of what I just witnessed was legal but I could be wrong.
EDIT/UPDATE: First off, some of y’all are toxic people. The fact that the suspect was black is... keep reading on reddit ➡
We live in Delhi and are currently living on rent. Our landlord is a lady who brought us into their home as she considered my mother to be an elder sister to her. They lived upstairs, we lived in ground floor.
The rent was decided to be 14,000 INR per month. We happily paid each month on time. Then lockdown hit us and our source of income was lost to us. We couldn't make rent for April after which the landlord and us had a verbal agreement that we will pay around 10,000 per month due to this pandemic situation.
They kept haggling us on a day to day basis for rent, even before date of payment. We did give them money regularly even by selling our things such as refrigerator and all. Rent was regularly made by us each month..
Then month of July came and we paid around 5,000 on 10th July and promised another 5,000 on 25th. They agreed but still kept haggling us everyday and soon, arguments and fights started to happen. They would come to our place and sit for hours, and would also call... keep reading on reddit ➡
We all know how destructive, dangerous and harmful alcohol is, to individuals (physical health, mental health, addiction, lack of control, expensive, use as a maladaptive coping mechanism...) and to society (domestic violence and abuse, sexual violence and rape, major disruptions near pubs every Friday/Saturday night, peer pressure...). It's the most harmful drug to society.
So when people say, "Well tobacco and alcohol are legal so why isn't weed?" they're shooting themselves in the foot. There is no doubt that if alcohol were discovered today, it would be a Class A drug. There are many arguments why legalising weed is bad, but this one seems to be used to support weed, when really it's an extremely strong argument against it, and it's an argument towards criminalisation of alcohol (which we can all agree would make the world a much better, safer, cleaner place). Honestly, making alcohol and in... keep reading on reddit ➡
Off-duty cops are just regular people who are not at work. Whatever actions they do should be viewed legally as a civilian doing them. There is no reason why the legal protections of being a cop should extend to their activities off duty actions. If someone is in danger/breaking the law, they should intervene as a civilian, meaning they have no legal responsibility to provide aid or execute the law. If an off-duty cop kills someone, it should be treated as if that person where a civilian who killed someone. I am not arguing whether or not the actions of off duty cops are right or wrong, just that those actions are not special and should face the same legal scrutiny as any other civilian.
Edit to add: "The St. Louis Metropolitan Department explained the work of its unnamed officer this way in a statement: “To clarify, secondary employment allows officers to work security in uniform and carry their department-issued weapons. The officer, while not on duty for the Police Department, st... keep reading on reddit ➡
My dad is a super “my way or the highway” guy. He’s super smart and funny and can be AWESOME when you’re getting along, but the moment you disagree with him he totally turns on you and gets really nasty, either attacking you as a person or just giving you the silent treatment. My mom left him when I was 16 and honestly my life has been a lot better since then. I was allowed to choose to live with my mom full time but in their custody agreement I was forced to do visitation with him while he had my siblings (15F and 13M, they live half and half). For the past two years that’s meant that twice I month I have to go over there for dinner and have my dad tell me everything that’s wrong with me and my life choices for like three hours. It’s always in a “fatherly” way like he means well, but the focus is always that I’m a disappointment to him because of my political/life views, which he says is all my mom “manipulating” me into feeling the way I do.
I hate visiting but my mom always said h... keep reading on reddit ➡
Back in 1989, my husband’s parents tried to name him “Ben!” with the exclamation point as part of his legal first name. A nurse at the hospital told them that punctuation marks were illegal, so they just went with "Ben" on the birth certificate.
We’ve since been discussing whether this was in fact the law, or if this nurse was just trying to stop a bad decision in action. I haven’t been able to find an easy answer, wondering if anyone here knows for sure?
