I am a mechanic at a fairly large workshop and recently I started to use makeup as I found it was boosting my confidence. I started with something to cover my eye bags but later on also tried mascara and a few other subtle things. Surprisingly I didn't get any comments from the other mechanics and everything seemed fine, my confidence was skyrocketing.
Because of how large the workshop is, we mechanics have little to no contact with customers. Customers are handled by two ladies working the front desk and we just go out to pick up the cars. Very rarely we have to talk to customers to figure out the problem.
I also have not much contact to the front desk ladies as we have different break times and our system is automated so we don't have to talk in person.
Yesterday I was approached by both of them which is very unusual and they both laid into me, that my makeup is highly unprofessional. Seems like a customer who had seen me had made a comment abouth me. They were both quite rude, telling me I needed to skip out on the makeup as it was so unprofessional and they had to deal with the customers all the time so they were affected by it. I was stunned as we are usually on friendly terms and them going off at me left me speechless.
I apologized in the moment but later on I thought about it and I don't want to stop wearing makeup. I feel confident with it and I feel like I should be able to put it on. On the other hand they are right that they have to deal with the customers and I don't want to make it harder for them.
EDIT: forgot an important info - I am male.
EDIT 2: Apparently all it took for the front desk ladies was a customer referring to me as "the one wearing mascara".
Empy circle exploit = ban
Split tag bypass = (so far) no bans
reroll unique items with harvest for perfect rolled uniques = no ban
rings with extra suffix / prefix = no ban
I am NOT defending empy for being banned. I am just stating that there are bigger exploits that do not result in bans, and GGG needs to clarify what is intended and you can lose your account over.
Can't count how many times I get frozen and the game doesn't let me break out of the freeze so I just sit there like an idiot popsicle waiting to be killed by a shotgun
I pull up to the workshop at the head of my small convoy and hop out of my car. Inside the junk-filled space ahead of me two men, one young and disturbingly skeletal, the other middle-aged with the kind of oaken solidity that working men acquire as they age, are regarding me with barely concealed contempt.
“What you want here?” the younger one asks with an aggressive tone. His sparse flesh is stretched over angular bones, his complexion worryingly pale. “We don’t work for just anyone.”
“Bob Jones sent me,” I say. “He installed my alloy wheels. Said you’d help me.”
The older man sniffs and puts down the cartoonishly large spanner he’s holding. “Bob Jones, you say,” he murmurs. He runs a hand through his short-cropped hair and fixes me with a hard glare. “So he’ll have told you what I want, then?”
I nod and point to the two articulated lorries that followed me into the yard.
“Twenty five tons of robot dog toys. Fresh off the container ship from Taiwan this morning.”
He nods approvingly and waves a hand at the younger man, sending him scurrying off to check the cargo. “Good, good,” he says. “But that’s not all, is it?”
“Here,” I say, pulling a sheaf of paper from my pocket and handing it over. “Logbooks showing I’ve owned this car from new and have driven over five thousand miles in it.”
He grunts as he takes the documents and flips through the pages.
“I guess that’ll do,” he says, nodding. He hands the papers back. “What can I do for you, then?”
“I’d like to get a turbocharger fitted,” I say.
“Turbocharger, you say?” He sucks his gums and shakes his head. “No simple matter, that.”
“I thought...I thought you’d just buy one and fit it?”
He guffaws wheezily, bending over and actually slapping one hand to his thigh.
“Just buy one,” he gasps. “Oh, lad, I needed that laugh today.” He shakes his head and repeats, “Just buy one,” like it’s the funniest thing he’s heard in a long time.
“Isn’t…” I begin but he cuts me off.
“Let me tell you how it works, son. Turbochargers, well, that’s no ordinary technology right there. That’s engineering. You can’t just go buy a turbocharger. They’re made from exotic materials like iron and aluminium.”
Perhaps my puzzlement shows on my face since he composes himself as if expecting familiar questions.
“Aren’t they common materials?” I ask and he nods as if I just confirmed every contemptuous thought he was thinking about me.
I pull out my phone and flick my fingers over it. “Look!” I say, holding it out to hi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was looking at a Ranar deck and thought how much of a shame it is that due to the release of more 'individual' sets instead of "set blocks", cool keywords like Foretell will probably not be printed in the near future and Ranar's first ability's power will be restricted to Kaldheim's limited number of foretell cards.
Obviously there are some extremely powerful keywords in commander like Storm, Infect, Eminence and Annihilator that WOTC probably don't want on too many cards. For example, 'Mutate' deserves more cards since it's a great mechanic that's both interesting and has clear weaknesses, and it will boost a lot of potential commanders in Ikoria. As for a tribe, me and a few people I know love cats but a commander like [[Arahbo, Roar of the World]] is so limited due to the lack of cat cards.
What do you want to see WOTC give more love to?
Hi I’ve been a long time lurker and I’ve been reading a lot of your DD. I’m quite impressed by it and believe heavily in the movement and what’s been achieved thus far.
I’d like to present some insight into the market and how I expect the chain of events to unfold over the next few months. (Yes months.) Using my position I’ve been tracking the stocks movement and volume and a few other key indicators, namely; rsi, si, Sv, spread and volatility queues.
The movement is at a key stage here and I think a lot of you very much underestimate the magnitude of what you’ve achieved thus far. So I’ll outline some bullet points.
. Total float owned by retail investors . Total shorted float owned by retail . Si rising steadily . Shortable float decreasing similarly . Solid company credentials and positive sentiment in the markets due to debt being repaid, company being refinanced and return to normal business. . You’ve cornered the market and played a very good game so far 100% utilisation . An incredibly important timing in the market where it’s reaching new ATH’s and starting to show the pains of an unequal recovery and of being exceptionally over inflated .Time
So my next thing to look at is what’s suppressing this stock. I’ll summarise and highlight as I think most of you are up to speed and diligent enough.
. Mass dilution in the last 18 months from 110m shares to 500m shares. . The main opponent to the stock is a market maker/ hedge fund with incredibly deep pockets and patience, a history of being being more bent than a copper, and the use of some very very impressive AI computer technology. . A reactive rather than proactive government . A heavily invested government with large sums tied directly to firms involved in both sides which creates agendas and conflicts. . A regulatory system that issues you with a parking fine for driving through a play park, pissed, with several dead hookers in the boot. (The cost of doing business.) . Most importantly the market is “irrational” at the moment. . Wanda’s algo seems to be set to issue sell orders at the value of $13.80 >.
HOW I EXPECT THE MARKET TO ACT
I’ve been studying this for months and watching carefully. Collecting data and consulting the crystal ball “price action simulations and experienced advice.” If my assumptions are correct then the market will react as follows.
As you’re aware retail investors own the vast majority of AMC stock. And the hedge funds are starting to feel the pinch here. It... keep reading on reddit ➡

From /u/bex_ggg. link
I played 8 games today in division 1 rivals and every game was the same; mechanics abuse / skill spam, whatever you want to call it.
Everyone is entitled to play how they want but this increasing trend of playstyle is becoming so boring to play against in my opinion. I rarely play anyone anymore who tries to play something that resembles football, instead they try to get into a 1v1 situation and then spam the directional nutmeg / la croqueta / skill cancel / ball roll into ball scoop usually with Ronaldo / Mbappe / Neymar who we all know have the jam in their favour.
It is mostly EAs fault at the end of the day with this year’s terrible passing, attacking AI and AI defending. I see people say ‘I skill a lot to break down defence’ which I do agree with and understand but majority of the time it’s spammed no matter where on the pitch and it’s the OP skills which people know border on exploit like the current meta of the directional nutmeg.
I’ve played FUT for years and I think this playstyle began to become more prevalent in FIFA 19 with the ridiculous el tornado crosses and non-stop la croquetas (lemme not forget to mention the dragback as well) and it’s got worse and worse since then. FIFA 21 is as bad as FIFA 19 because of this to me, we’re at a point where this just isn’t a football game anymore. Football IQ is no longer rewarded such as cutting the passing lanes, reading the game well etc because I will work hard for a goal and then concede from a Hail Mary through ball (don’t get me started on the passing assistance this year) or directional nutmeg.
Before people say ‘just because you can’t skill’, I’m SR 2320 and get E3/G1 (I stop at G1/G2 nowadays as there’s only so much skill spam I can mentally take) in WL without the use of mechanics abuse / skill spam (despite knowing it would probably get me a few more wins) and I know how to do it but choose not to because to me it’s not football.
I just find it so boring to play against especially knowing the jam is going to go in their favour in the game at least once from the skill spam no matter how well I defend.
TLDR: If you are in favor of the world drop nerf as it was implemented, you don't understand the game mechanics well. Artifacts and class mods don't have annointments that can be rerolled. The number of useless legendaries remains the exact same as before. Just because your screen isn't crowded with them doesn't mean that somehow the quality was improved with the quantity nerf.
Let's talk specifics.
"YoU cAn ReRoLl aNoInTmEntS" It's clear from the people who voice support for the nerf that they don't know Class Mods and Artifacts do not roll with anointments, and therefore have become extraordinarily painful to farm for specific stats. If we could reroll random stats on these to bring them in line with weapons/shields/grenades, then the world drop nerf would be closer to being okay. As it stands, farming for trifecta stat class mods and Artifacts is essentially impossible. You could dedicate literal months of in-game time and never get one. The effort to reward ratio in this game is horrendous, which brings me to my next point.
Eridium farming in this game is beyond slow and difficult. The best methods are tedious and boring and don't even yield a decent amount of Eridium. Take Ruiner for example. If you are hyper efficient and can kill him and reload the game once per minute, you'll get an average of 50 Eridium per kill. If you are able to repeat this 60 times in 1 hour, congratulations, you got enough to reroll a grand total of 12 times. Given that there are well over 40 different anointments, which can roll over and over again, giving you no protection against bad luck, this means you can spend 8 hours farming Eridum, giving you 96 chances to reroll, and easily never see the anointment you want because you have barely a 2% chance of getting the right anointment. It isn't clear yet if better anointments are weighted unfavorably but it could be the case.
"I DoNt WaNt To SeE 200 uSelEsS lEgEnDaRiES" Too bad. You still will. Nothing about this nerf suggests the quality of the very few legendaries we get has been improved. You are just going to come across these 200 legendaries over a much longer period of time. It baffles me that I even have to explain this. Again, there was NO BUFF to the QUALITY of the legendaries, which means a nerf to the QUANTITY is not going to magically mean that you're going to see more useful legendaries drop. You can easily observe this yourself.
Using rough numbers to illustrate this point, let's say prenerf you sat and p... keep reading on reddit ➡
Don't understand why low-life builds have to invest a passive point to be able to see lab traps. Stupid and archaic design.
You know how you need to buy the DLC in order to be able to stop the disaster as Majapahit in a patch named 'Majapahit'? Well, I say Paradox should embrace the current global trend and add account progression that lets you unlock more available countries as you play.
You only have 10 countries available at start. A mix of starters to get you hooked, decent but nothing crazy. Portugal, Mamluks, Delhi, Sweden of course, a few more. By playing and completing missions and achievements you get shards of different countries that you can collect and combine into a country unlock. The number of shards depends on whether a country is common, uncommon, rare, epic or legendary. Of course, it's not dependent on how popular it is, but how interesting it is. If a country has a unique achievement it's usually at least rare. And of course you can buy lootboxes that can have random country shards. Alongside other things, of course, like building models, unit models and special border colours. On a per-country basis. And soundtrack, sure.
Most common countries are the boring ones that almost nobody wants anyway. Augsburg. Navarra. Kiowa. Yaka. Denmark. Gilan. Those you'll get fast and get plenty. If you want something at least a little more special, you'll need green uncommon shards. Not only are they more rarely found, but also you need more of them to unlock the country. It's got a decent mix of kinda playable countries. Maybe Nogai, Mali, Kilwa, Mysore, Ava, Chagatai, Firenze, Silesia, Norway, the Irish minors, the Madagascar guys, hell, let's even throw the Kamchadals in there.
Once you get to Rare, things get really interesting. Of course, you'll have to complete multiple playthroughs or snipe some exact achievements to get one. Or, you know, buy a 20-pack of lootboxes for $79.99. This is where you start seeing things like Scotland, Naples, Tunis, Lithuania, Kongo, Great Horde, Brittany, Qara Qoyunlu, Adal, Bahmanis, Bengal, Hungary even, the daimyos...
Epic countries are where stuff is really at. It's where the majority of big ones is, because then it seems somehow more fair then if you lock them all behind legendary. Castile and Aragon, Poland, Muscovy, the Ottomans, France, Bohemia, England, Ethiopia, Milan, Burgundy and so on.
The legendary countries are the ones with their special mechanics or meme value. Ming, Austria, Brandenburg (you know why), Ulm, Ryukyu... actuall... keep reading on reddit ➡
First of all, for you GM that read the title of this post: no, I'm not talking about the narrative you create for your game, or that you're not giving situations where your martial characters can shine. I've seen that argument before for why this problem exists, and, honestly, I don't think it's a very good one. What I'm talking about here is the underlying narrative on top of which the game system itself is built.
As D&D evolved as a game and a product, it slowly went from a game that's mainly about lowly adventurers trying to survive their way through dangerous dungeons and having trouble to even take their treasure home with them, to a heroic, high fantasy game. The mechanics themselves evolved with that trend. However, the high fantasy in that sentence has a big asterisk, and that asterisk says "if you have magic". Non-magical characters, in most instances, still live in a dimensional bubble where the high fantasy elements are replaced by an almost mundane world logic.
Sure, your Fighter might be able to swing an axe really hard and kill a giant demon (even then, you kinda need to have a magical axe to do decent damage), but on every other place in the game that doesn't involve making attack rolls against armor classes, you're not really much better than an olympic athlete. For real, your 20 Strength score isn't even breaking real life world records in most categories if you run this sort of thing by RAW. And in my opinion, it's on this narrative dissonance that the real problem lies. Sure, I don't think anyone wants their Fighter to start shooting Fireballs when they swing their sword without magic, but why do they need to follow such a down to earth logic?
You could do some damage comparisons and I do agree it's a bit too easy for a magic user to be as good as a martial in weapon combat (looking at you, Hexblade), but the heart of the issue always lies into how magical characters can do things and mundane characters can't. However, if you started looking at these characters as the high fantasy pseudo superheroes that fit with the rest of the world, a lot of these issues go away. Let high level Fighters Hulk Jump, break walls – normal or magical – with a couple swings of their weapon, wrestle with creatures that are a hundred times their size without help of their Wizard friend casting Enlarge, or even dart through the battlefield and hit six different people in completely different places in the blink of an eye. Yes, the last one is litera... keep reading on reddit ➡
Made a list of all the supports (33) in League, this post is based on my experience and what I see as underused/unknown. Even if you have been playing for a while I guarantee you will learn something in this post.
Note: if you are higher elo you may already know these (because at that level every detail counts), this is more for the general league player. Some of these mechanics are what i see most players not using enough.
If you have any corrections or feedback I'll fix them up
Alistar: ult cleanses you of all cc including suppress like malz ult and knockups like malph ult, passive heal can be sped up by q w and e (1 stack each) meaning you can heal while engaging
Bard: You can use e on the wall in base to travel fast and save about 4 seconds each time (i pull this off myself), you can be knocked out of e while travelling instantly when hit with cc
Blitzcrank: Ult completely destroys shields before doing ult damage (so save it against a janna), if your enemies keep hiding in between minions just wait inside a bush to waste vision while putting pressure, blitz e doubles ad which can be amplified even more with crit (like 200% dmg)
Brand: Ult cd is refunded if the enemy becomes untargetable or dies, w does 25% bonus dmg if you have hit the enemy with another ability already so it's better to use it second if possible for max dmg
Braum: You can use w on yourself to give bonus resistances, Braum ult does NOT give passive stacks so auto a target first if possible so while the enemy is in cc your allies can use your passive
Galio: Ult is super useful for peel against melee because it knocks enemies in the centre back and gives an ally a magic shield so it can be used near allies if all CDs are down, using q right behind the enemy usually guarantees a hit (until they catch on)
Janna: You can shield turrets to stop enemies from sieging, Janna can chase down most champions with her passive movement speed allowing you to constantly aa allowing you to punish enemies in lane for overstepping, spell shields render your ult knockback useless
Karma: basic attacks can reduce ult cd by 1 second, ult + w gives a large heal that increases the lower hp you are right when the enemy is tethered heals AGAIN after the enemy is rooted ( u/pinelien )
Leona: you can solo kill a ward without sweepers by using AA q AA, leona ult also has an animation cancel when you use ult followed up by a auto attack
Lulu: you can saf... keep reading on reddit ➡
FINALLY. A TOKEN AGAINST RUGPULLERS, SCAMMERS, HONEYPOTS, AND PUMP & DUMPS
READ THIS CAREFULLY: (if you don't, it may cause you to do something you'll regret)
❌ This token has an Anti-Pump & Dump feature. I've never seen anything quite like it.
$Anon incurs a massive tax for anyone who sells in the initial days - this tax adds to liquidity pool and rewards the holders. We all know that low liquidity is a HUGE problem in BSC tokens, and it seems like the creators of $Anon have found a pretty innovative way to solve it, while at the same time discouraging pump and dumpers from killing the token.
(EXPIRED) Sell within 12 hours : 40% burn (30% Back to the Liquidity Pool, 10% Redistributed to Holders)
(EXPIRED) Sell within 1 day : 32% burn (24% Back to the Liquidity Pool, 8% Redistributed to Holders)
(CURRENT) Sell within 3 days : 24% burn (18% Back to the Liquidity Pool, 6% Redistributed to Holders)
(FUTURE) Sell within 7 days : 16% burn (12% Back to the Liquidity Pool, 4% Redistributed to Holders)
(FUTURE) Standard burn (After 7 days) : 8% burn (6% Back to the Liquidity Pool, 2% Redistributed to Holders)
They also have max order size, and max wallet size, to help prevent whales from causing massive dumps.
💰 Max Purchase: 100m tokens 💰 Max Wallet: 200m tokens
🚀 The launch was a huge success...Reaching $1,000,000 Mcap in only three hours 🚀
It has since reached an ATH Mcap of $8,000,000.
The anti-pump & dump isn't the only reason you should look at this coin though... The creators have a mission. Their goal is to expose those who exploit you. The ones who pull the rug from under you. The ones who negate your ability to sell. The ones who dump on you after you support their token.
🔫 Bounty System:
The creators of this token are in the works of setting up a Bounty System. Holders of the token who help in exposing scammers and wrongdoers will receive rewards for their help in making the BSC a safer place.
Our goal is to create a database of:
This is only the beginning, and we need everyone's help to make the BSC a safer place to invest.
