>I have decided not to re-sign with the LEC for the 2021 season. I cannot reveal the next steps yet, but I've always felt strongly about moving into management and development positions. I wish the LEC broadcast, teams, and fans the very best. I absolutely loved it there.
in an incredible act of self-irony, I will post her words about reddit here:
>Ahhh one last reddit hate thread. Nice. I gave you so much of my life and effort and it was never worth it to try for your acceptance. You don't know anything, you torture players and personalities. You truly are - and I mean this - the worst aspect of this incredible community.
I dont even know where to begin. It serves up so much "food for thought" and so well. But mostly, I dont recall ever having watched a show where the chemistry between the characters inbetween and to the viewer are so strong. Even though I watched all 7 seasons in only a few weeks I cannot get enough. I absolutely miss them. Going through some "best of episode lists" on the internet, recalling some of the greatest moments almost made me sad, but in a good way. Especially thinking about some of the episodes that I really loved "The Inner Light", "Who watches the watchers" and "the offspring" (among many others). Just wanted to share.
Edit: Seems like I struck a nerve, RIP inbox!

But I feel obligated to. More and more I am wishing for a new way to do this power level thing. What about like set difficulties or something instead? I don't know, I'm just exhausted, and I can finally chill having hit 1260 base power on everything, and I don't want to go all the way to the top again. Don't get me wrong I had a ton of fun this season! I just cannot wrap my head around getting the energy to do the power level grind & management next season. It doesn't make sense.
edit: thank you for your thoughts everyone. I would be interested to hear ideas of alternatives to this current grinding system. Also the reason I want to do 1260 is because I just play trials and nightfalls for the most part also my name is gjerda on youtube
Final update for the true onions: All the cooking is done. I have another wonderful pot of caramelized onions. The smell really wasn't too bad once the cooking finished. Since we've got a huge orange tree and Costco sized vanilla extract, I put a big handful of orange peels, a couple generous swishes of vanilla extract, and some water in a pot and let it simmer. The house smells great. I will never forget you onions out there.
Update 2: After doing a majority of the cooking in the instant pot outside, the onions are now on my stove. Luckily I just got a new range hood less than a week ago so that's on full blast. Guess what we've decided to include in dinner tonight? Hint: it's onion rings.
Update: Day 2 is upon us. I just finished cutting up about 8 quarts of onions. I have an instant pot coming up to pressure on my porch as we speak. A fan is blowing in the direction of my cutting station to the window. I immediately washed all my cutting equipment and wiped the counters with a mix of dish soap, water, and lemon essential oil. I promise I’m not a crazy essential oil lady, I just like the smell and it makes a good cheap all-purpose cleaner. See you all in about 2 onions for another update?
Edit: Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. I have decided to postpone the onion marathon until tomorrow due to me being drugged up on Benadryl and not wanting to enter an onion-induced coma. Tomorrow is a new onion. Wish me onion. Onion.
TLDR: GME likely to be very volatile next week around $30, $35, $39-$40 especially. 39/40 pass would force about 5m shares of net-buying by MMs, while passing through 30 is about 4.5m shares of additional selling. 36/37 and 31/32/33/34 are more stable. If price shoots up into the mid 50s 🚀🚀🚀🚀 , definitely duck for cover Friday. Margin changes are actually bearish. Consider being on a brokerage that pays to loan your shares to shorts if long, because it's very profitable. Shorts can be squeezed, but so too can longs who use call options, and shorts who use put options.
Important note: The massive melt-up we had this week was a GAMMA SQUEEZE. Options market makers had to buy about 30m shares (or cover short shares, thanks Melvin Capital, then buy) while going on that run from 20 to 40 to hedge their positions. That as you know is more than half the float. My belief is that gamma effects will continue to be a big deal - but less of a big deal than last week because we have less options near the money now. Ironically, Melvin Capital made this melt-up far stronger, contributing 5m shares of forced buying in a rapid spike at $24/$25.
I’ve seen a lot of discussions about GME over the past week that are missing important bull and bear elements in the thesis. This sub is so incredibly bullish 🚀🚀🚀🚀 that unsurprisingly, there’s more missing bear arguments than bull, and bearish information is sometimes perceived as bullish (such as the margin requirement increases, which I feel are net-bearish). But there's also missing bull information, namely that more new gamma ramps exist high than low it appears, and they appear pretty large.
I previously posted about some option dynamics last week, that seem to have played out to an extent. I actually lost money on my puts because the expressed vol was less than I thought, and Friday ended up playing out in a basically neutral way from a bull/bear perspective with a mere 10% drawdown. That post is here. I correct predicted the outcome, but didn’t predict the magnitude well enough and thus my trade sucked:
In this new post, I’ll cover what I know about current option structure (and will update once updated data for Friday comes out), and the implications (TLDR: Mostly, ex... keep reading on reddit ➡
Im sorry for assuming people read descriptions and not just titles. Thats literally my fault. The title seems "too sciency" and thats far from what i intended. I was just posting my life pro tip on the very sub. Not a claim to /r/science. My mistake was assuming everyone reads descriptions. I apologize.
Im learning everything as it has been 5 hours since ive posted and have reached enough replies. [[This is nothing related to death or physical pain or serious life problems .. just your day to day encounters awkward moments arguments the little stuff]].. THIS IS NOT 100% SCIENTIFIC FACT. THIS IS NOT FOR SITUATIONS UNCONTROLLABLE LIKE PHYSICAL PAIN AND MENTAL DIAGNOSIS. This is help for Karen type moments day of stuff. You will not feel better the next day. You will be able to react better the next day is all i'm simply saying. Controllable moments. If you have chest pains or have been mentally diagnosed or are unbearing of what youre going through seek help immediately this is my own personal experience we are all wired differently - i made the mistake thinking everyone understood what i meant without details even though i had the details below and the title wont let me fit more details i needed more detail.
As hard as it may seem at the moment.
Tough day at work. Managers being mean for no reason.
Someone bullies you. Calls you names.
Family or friend arguement.
Find a weird lump on you that sets you to panic mode instantly.
Virtually anything in your life that sets you to a state of mental discomfort.. (not literally dying guys if you are dying go get help immediately).. Im talking about controllable moments.. Not physical pain or mental problems. Like the "karen yelled at me at work" problems. Do not prey on the thoughts immediately. Do not lash out or panic. As much as you wanna run to your mom and cry, Accept that it has happened. Put your emotions away. And as hard as it is at the moment, move on from it, sleep the night. Tomorrow come back at it with a clear mind and approach the problem. However youd like. But now your mind is in tune properly.
As the examples in my post state its for the things that bare no weight immediately .. reading through the comments it is confirmed this has existed and it is called the 24 hour rule. Again .. not physical pain or mental diagnosis problems.. just your day to day encounters
Just accepted a job offer for a 20% pay bump!
During the interview with the hiring manager, she asked me if I was married and I panicked and I said yes (stupid I know).
The hiring manager probed and I said she was in the banking industry and that her parents even lived right next to my new workplace.
Ultimately I felt this contributed to me getting an edge in the job interview to a small extent.
Now I’m worried about the implications of this. Beyond getting a passable wedding ring how do I deal with the Christmas parties, happy hours and other office related activities that may involve spouses?
TL;DR - I’m an idiot. Please help me.
Worked for a shitty airline company. Let’s just make up a name... United Blairlines. At this company they started a smaller company that could hire and train people to run the planes, but pay them way less at certain airports. Where my colleagues at other airports were making over $20/hr, I was getting paid $10.25 for the same- and sometimes more- work. It honestly would scare you to know how little the people who are the ones that make sure your plane takes off safely are paid. All of us had two to three jobs to be able to pay rent, and we were all in the job for the benefits- free flights to anywhere in the country- on standby. Anyway I had a boss, we’ll call him Jim. I could tell many stories on how terrible of a boss he was, but this one has actual malicious compliance.
I had to go to the hospital from the airport because of intense pain in my stomach. It turns out that because of stress caused by that job, my intestines decided to stop functioning. Anyway I spend the day in the hospital and then they gave me a note saying that I didn’t have to work the next two days. I told Jim’s boss that (since I hated talking to Jim) When I went back into work three days later. We had five people total to load all luggage, load the water, and push out five planes in a little over an hour. Already an incredible amount of work for so few people. We had our morning work meeting to discuss how fucked we were, then Jim asked me into his office. “Your attendance is unacceptable.” He said. Dumbfounded, I asked what he meant. “You’ve been late a couple of times, and now missing the past three days...” I said “Jim, I have the note from the hospital. According to work policy, that shouldn’t affect my attendance.” “I don’t care what work policy says. I’m going to fire you.” Again I cited work policy since we were “protected” by a union. I said “Jim you have to give me an attendance warning before you’re allowed to fire me for attendance. This is the first time I’m hearing about attendance, so you can’t fire me right now.” Jim said “it doesn’t matter, I’m going to give you a warning right now, and when I get back from vacation next week, you’re going to be fired, now go back to work, my decision is final.” So, I told my coworkers what happened. Then I decided alright well if next week he’s firing me, I’ll just leave now. Even though their day was about to be fucked since now four people were working five planes, they all said fuck this place, get out of here! So I left and w... keep reading on reddit ➡
