In the classroom the next day, Joe gave his example first, “My dad is a farmer and we have chickens. One day we were taking lots of eggs to the market in a basket on the front seat of the truck when we hit a big bump in the road. The basket fell off the seat and all the eggs broke.” The moral of the story is not to put all your eggs in one basket. “Very good,” said the teacher. Next, Mary said, “We are farmers too. We had twenty eggs waiting to hatch, but when they did we only got ten chicks.” The moral of this story is not to count your chickens before they’re hatched . “Very good,” said the teacher again, very pleased with the response so far.
Next it was Barney’s turn to tell his story: “My dad told me this story about my Aunt Karen. Aunt Karen was a flight engineer in the war and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of whiskey, a machine gun and a machete.” “Go on,” said the teacher, intrigued.
“Aunt Karen drank the whiskey on t... keep reading on reddit ➡
To be honest, I think the community is getting far too hyped over literally nothing. Been seeing a lot of "they haven't shown us anything so it must mean x". I think we need to consider what we've already seen of year 3 and temper expectations.
Bungie may have said "season 11 will be like no other time in Destiny", they also said "we didn't want to release trials half baked". They have a history of over-hyping and under-delivering.
People have seen what a Y3 season can offer, and really, it's nothing gamechanging - the Y4 expansion could be great, but I honestly doubt they will have made some incredible changes to improve things before then.
"Player five-kay-alpha, time to wake up!"
My eyes blink away the crust that had formed in their corners. How long had it been since they last chose me, since they used me last? My own internal biological clock claims to weeks of dormancy.
An electronic voice bleats from the sole speaker of my gray, padded room. It tells me to do something, I obey before the command has even finished. I rise quickly and make my way over to the stainless steel trough. It is opposite to my sleep chamber, a now-hallow silver pill large enough to house my weak body.
"Go to your feeding trough, we need yer nice and plump, heh-heh-heh."
FWOOMP. The chamber on the east side of the trough jettisons Silver 2 kibble feed into my trough. I stoop down and start bringing the food to my mouth. It is mushy, rife with water content that will keep me hydrated without the aid of the stasis sleep tube. My teeth are quickly speckled with what I can't swallow, and I fervently wish to feel a toothbrush against my teeth... keep reading on reddit ➡

On current-gen consoles you can suspend a game when you want to do something else. Suspend the console as well, and when you wake up you can go do something else.
Ofcourse you can argue that this works in a similar way as alt-tabbing a game, but in that case the game is still actively running in the background. A lot of games also won't survive windows's hibernation mode like it would on console.
With next-gen consoles we are seeing something fancier: Game states will be fully commited to disk when you decide to suspend them. You can switch back and forth between games and fully reboot your OS without an issue.
I wonder if we can replicate this on modern pc's. We have NVMe's that make the same suspension trick very possible, but as far as I'm aware we don't have the software that can do this: Maybe an extra "suspend" feature in your game launcher. Possibly something Microsoft could relatively easy do with their launcher since all their games run in a walled environment and they alr... keep reading on reddit ➡
Alright, I get it. His death was tragic and was a loss to many people he influenced, But people still seem to be blowing it out of proportion. People made it seem like the world was ending and put more weight on his death then the Coronavirus reaching america back in January. I am also sick of only hearing his name when 8 other people died including his daughter. His death was tragic and untimely but it is in no way comparable to hundreds of thousands dying to Covid-19, Millions of people losing their jobs, the fires in Australia or any other thing that is happening in the world. There is so much crazy stuff happening that it does a disservice to say he had any part in the world running shit first into a fan.

She said: "Well, I dreamt of a golden ring with lots of small diamonds."
I asked her: "What do you think it means?"
She smiled and said: "I don't know..."
Flash forward to her birthday, with all our family members at the table, I gave her my present.
I still don't know why she didn't like this book called 'Dreams and their Meanings'.
A teacher told the students, "The person who answers my next question correctly gets to leave class early."
Suddenly, a pen came flying across to room, practically hitting the teacher in the face.
"Who threw that?!" the teacher shouted angrily.
"Me!" piped up a voice from the back of the classroom. "Can I leave now?"

And could explain why they are cutting it so close to the next season for the season announcement and the year announcement.

We share grief in the murder of George Floyd and too many others.
We stand with BLM. We support those who stand against these injustices and fight systemic racism.
u/spez (who also happens to be a /r/HighQualityGifs mod) stated on social media platforms this week that Reddit stands against racism. I hope that is true. I believe it is. But the time has come to stop telling us, and start showing us.
Reddit has allowed racists and racist subreddits to live and spread their hate on this website for far too long. They have seen hate, racism and violence and looked the other way, or used a "quarantine" to banish it to some hidden corner of Reddit. Out of sight, out of mind, right? But that's not good enough anymore. It is time to take action. Please stop giving hate a home on Reddit.
We ask that Reddit—at the very least—take concrete action to ban and remove users and communities who perpetuate racism.
Not censor. Not quarantine. Remove.

Reddit is a safe space for racism. It shouldn't be.
The United States has a long-standing, inter-generational race relations issue. The internet has exacerbated this through euphemistic language - the technique which began with Barry Goldwater’s thinly disguised ‘states rights’ campaign is now commonplace and used every minute on this website to dismiss the concerns of ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQI+, and many others.
Racism is an intrusion of cockroaches living in the walls of Reddit. You may see one skittering across the floor, or racing away after you disturb its hiding spot, but that’s only one of the greater den this website harbors. Over years of inaction, this website has continued to allow anti-ethnic sentiments and communities to fester, tucked away in their own safe spaces, venturing out to provoke, incense and recruit.

I know how the title sounds!
I’ve been with my husband since I was 17 and he was 20, his sister is 4 years younger than him.
3 years into our relationship we got married, I’m 28 now.
I gave birth 8 months ago and I’m currently 6months pregnant with our second.
Two years ago my husbands sister lost her flat, she had a 2 year old so I of course agreed to let her stay with us- rent for her is £200 a month (which barely covers her food) and we specified she would have to tidy up after herself and her child because my husband and I both work full time.
I’ve been off for a while now, I’m still working from home though but no longer go into the office and while his sister has never been the tidiest (she did the bare minimum) she now does absolutely nothing apart from making a mess.
My husband helps out sometimes but, bless his heart, he can burn water and he has no back bone meaning despite only having one child at the moment I’m tidying up after two, three if you count his sister.

Let me preface this by saying that while this story might paint my mother in a bad light, she did have flaws but was also a very supportive and good mom.
I’m 24 now.
My mom loves to tell embarrassing stories from my childhood to people. I don’t mind most of them but there is one in particular that really makes me angry every time she tells it because of the backstory. Which is as follows:
I was probably 12/13 and near puberty, my mom was always very open about the changes I would be soon experiencing and bought me everything I needed for when the day came. I was nervous about it but not really embarrassed. My mom had a shower with a clear glass door that I would use because it was a lot nicer than mine.
One day she’s in the shower and her phone rings and it’s her boyfriend. He was nice and at that point I had met him a few times and liked him. From the shower, she says go ahead and answer and say hello. As I go to answer the phone stops ringing so I unlock it and it opens to the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know it may not seem like a big deal but to me it is. I started using heroin at age 16 and I never thought I'd be here today.
It has been the hardest journey of my life, but I keep pushing on.
I told my mom and she shrugged it off. But when I told my mother in law she was ecstatic. She has no idea what that means to me.
Edit: I want to say thank you to everyone who commented! I'm trying to get to all of you, but if I can't tonight I will tomorrow! All of you have really touched my heart!
Edit 2: I'm a female lol not that it matters I am just not used to being called by dude nouns 🙈 what matters is the fact that there's so many of you showing such kindness and beautiful words!
50's and 60's only had between 8-13 races per year. 80's and 90's only had 16 per year. I know there will be a tonne of these posts over the next few months, so let's knock it on the head early. Who wins, wins.
I (19f) live with my parents. My older brother (25) moved back in at the beginning of the current event. My brother is an alcoholic, and he has epilepsy. His doctors have told him he should not drink at all, as alcohol will trigger his seizures because of the medication (I'm not sure on the specifics but basically, he is not supposed to drink). When he takes his medication properly and doesn't drink, he rarely has seizures and can always sense them coming, and because of this, he is allowed to drive. Nobody advises that he does drive, though.
I live in the UK, and I passed my driving test last December. I bought myself a little car with my student loan, and I insure it on my own. My insurance is 1.5k a year, the car was 1k, and my income for the year is 7k as I'm at uni and I only have my student loan. I pay my parents rent, around 1k for the year.
My brother recently went to the store for our family shop. The store is about a five minute drive from our house. Nobody is happy about h... keep reading on reddit ➡
I asked her why she was doing this
"I'm your mother"
I said, "If I was doing this i would get grounded."
"Do I not have privacy?"
What she said next phisically pains me
"Well, I'm sitting here next to you waiting for you to wake up with nothing to do, so I was bored."
"Why were you waiting?"
"you have schoolwork and I want you to get started on it"
"Then tell me to get started on it and don't look through my stuff!"
I don't know how long she was there, or what she looked through, but damn, really?
Edit: Yes I have a password. I'm not THAT stupid. Somehow she figured it out and here we are.
Edit 2: To all the people saying "Well, you don't pay for it, so screw you."
That's akin to saying, "Do you pay for the house? No. So take the door off the bathroom."
