I like how both help each other but can still be good on their own, imo, i hope to see more exotics that pair with existing exotics, or even new ones released together.
My (41M) daughter, “Rose” lives part-time with me and part-time with her mother, “Jean” (42F) as we are separated. Jean is now married to “Dan” (45M) and step-mother to “Meg” (17F) and Billy (14M). Jean & Dan aren’t badly off but I am doing quite a bit better financially.
There has long been tension between Rose and Jean. As a child she blamed Jean for the divorce, she does so less now but I think it was a barrier in their relationship for a while. Meg is very insecure and always comparing herself to Rose, which has been an issue pretty much since the start of Jean and Dan’s relationship. It means that Jean and Dan are very vigilant about Meg feeling less-than, which I do get, but because of this Rose often feels neglected.
They’ve been having a lot of arguments over clothes. Rose is quite a “girly girl” and spends a lot of money on her wardrobe and makeup. Dan and Jean are very opposed to this. (Rose believes that it also bothers Meg and that that’s why they’re trying to control her wardrobe, although I’m not 100% sure on that.)
That’s background info. During lockdown, Rose started a small business online so she had something to do. She worked very hard and, despite starting sixth form recently, has continued to spend time on it. She’s therefore made herself quite a bit of money, especially on top of pocket and birthday money etc.
She saw a pair of shoes that she at once absolutely committed her heart to getting. They are $118, so quite a few £’s, but they are definitely unique and she LOVES them. She sent me a screenshot saying she was going to order them (she tends to when she is excited about a purchase), and she must have done the same with her mother, because Jean and Dan immediately forbade her from buying them. Their reasoning is that Rose doesn’t need them, they’re very expensive, and she should be saving for university. Rose was very upset and it escalated into a nasty argument into which Meg also got involved.
Rose was very upset which naturally tugs at the paternal heartstrings, but I do genuinely completely disagree with them telling her that she can’t spend money that she’s worked for, especially since shoes etc. make her so happy. I expressed this to Jean and she repeated that she’s sixteen and has better things to be saving up for. I agreed so I ordered the shoes myself.
Rose was ecstatic which was what I was going for, but as a result she’s had another fight with Meg. Jean and Dan are spitting at me and say that I’m undermining t... keep reading on reddit ➡
We are receiving a plethora of threads about asking about which unreleased CPU should be paired with which unreleased GPU, as well as general RDNA2 and Zen3 questions.
Quite frankly, these questions aren't answerable, as neither RDNA2 or Zen3 are out yet, we don't have independent benchmarks, we don't know what availability will be like, we don't know what regional pricing will be like and nor do we know your use case or which unreleases CPU and/or unreleased GPU will best serve your needs.
You should wait for independent reviews and then decide what to buy, taking into account availability, pricing and whether the performance uplift is worth it for you — if you are happy with what you have now, save your money and see what Zen4 and RDNA3 is like
Nonetheless, if you'd like to speculate or ask questions about which unreleased CPU and unreleased GPU will best serve your needs, please do so here.

--- A grand ol’ story ---
There once was a grand ball at a Mansion in Massachusetts. The guests were the most extravagant of the land and it was evident right from the start of the party that it would be a grand affair. The party lasted many days and nights and the party goers had such a grand time that they had little time to sleep.
However, there was one thing that was not very grand about the party. There were murderers hiding in the midst of the esteemed grand people! During the nights, these guilty murderers snuck through the grand halls of the mansion and slowly killed off the party goers. A grand detective joined the party a few days into the party and started making grand declarations about how they could catch the grand murderers.
First, the grand detective had the grand idea to lock the grand guests into rooms and have them create grand exclamations about who in their room were guilty. The grand plan seemed to work grandly and the killings seemed to slow down. But there was still grand work to be done.
A few days later, the grand detective had another grand idea. The grand detective grandly put grand handcuffs on each of the grand party guests. Now it became much easier to see where each of the grand guests were in the grand ball at the grand mansion in grand Massachusetts.

###Notice: The Next Phase (Night 05) will be an Event Phase.
###Event Phase: Let’s Split Up
"Yes. We have very little time left, so we'll split up into pairs."
"Pairs? Wait a minute, suppose that one of us is the murderer, if we split up into pairs, whichever one is left with the killer might get killed!"
"Then we would have discovered who the murderer is!"
"But the other half of the pair would be dead!"
Today, you will be split into pairs. The three pairs with the highest cumulative number of votes between them will be voted out. (Yes, that means six deaths total.) Each person will still vote for 3 names on the form.
RNG has decided the pairs for this event:
What unique or intriguing commander(s) from the new legends set are you most excited to build around? What directions are you thinking of taking the deck and why? What intention do you have for the deck and its playstyle at the table? And lastly, what powerlevel do you think it will turn out to be?
I'm curious to see what the community is brewing! Hope everyone is well!
Boros has been getting some wonderful support lately! With the advent of some specific leaked cards from the new set and some recent additions to red and white in general, the colour pair is finally getting the resources it needs to compete at the average table. However I'm seeing a lot of pushback from the community... and it's because boros is "too aggressive" with its commander archetypes???
Look, Every color pair does it's thing. For example, Simic is ramp, card draw and busted garbage. Dimir is control and mill, Azorious is **you're not allowed to play magic** and Gruul is ~ haha big creatures go stomp stomp ~. Every other pair does something unique to it and distinct. My point here is that every colour pair does something specific for a specific audience, and that's decided by what the two colours have in common.
Boros is red and white, the two most straight forwardly aggressive colours in magic. Boros *is* the combat colour pair. They turn stuff sideways. They smack stuff first and ask questions later. They giggle at the idea of extra combat steps and lose to board wipes. That's their thing. This is an underpowered strategy in commander of course, and wizards has been slowly making up for it. You would expect an overwhelming support for the recent cards, but there's been a resounding "meh, it's boring. too much attacking" in place of excitement. And... yeah???????? that's the point????????
It's as if people expect Boros to just be Simic but reskinned or something. Boros doesn't do land ramp. It doesn't do unconditional card draw, it doesn't do control, It doesn't do mill and it certainly doesn't do [[Demonic consultation]] into [[Thassa's oracle]] combo lines. it doesn't do a lot of things, but thats okay. If you want those things, play Simic. Boros is for people that want to play aggro. Boros **IS** aggro. Some of us like brainlessly rotating our squares of overpriced cardboard sideways. Some of us enjoy equipping [[Squee, the immortal]] with 70 swords and making caveman noises as he yeets someone to the shadow realm. Player removal is a wonderful thing.
I understand people want Boros to do other things beyond smacking people and screaming incoherently when someone plays a ghostly prison effect. Of course; the pairing needs a bit of diversity. But as it stands, Boros doesn't even do it's MAIN THING well in this format. I just feel it's unreasonable to get mad when wizards makes cards that try and fix this because they'... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I sat on the couch earlier. My nieces glasses were on the couch when I sat down and they broke. My sister says I should pay for them because I was the one who broke them. I don’t think I should pay for them because it wasn’t my fault they were left on the couch.
My sister says I should have checked before I sat down, but that just seems weird. Do people actually check before they sit down on the couch in case someone left something expensive and fragile there?
Update: I decided I’m going to pay for some more reasonably priced frames at one of the affordable places several of you recommended.
I remember standing in line at American Eagle a few years ago and the lady in front of me was buying size zero jeans. I was buying size 18. I remember feeling ashamed and so big and uncomfortable, and trying to soothe myself, but I really just wanted to hide. At that point, I couldn't comprehend losing weight, I wasn't connected to my body at all. I couldn't imagine not being in double digit sizes. Plus size was my identity.
During quarantine, I've gone from a 6 to a 4 (still at American Eagle) just from quitting hard liquor/cutting out drunk snacks.
I'm posting this because everyone's pictures here are what kept me motivated!!! Do not give up, envision the body you want and just tackle ONE day at a time. Set your intention in the morning and stick to it!
