I think the title says it all, really.
But, there's a group who want to cherry pick at least some of: Stealing Creation, Dungeoneering, Summoning, Evil Trees, Effigies, the Nomad quests, Curses, graphical improvements, etc. Probably with some improvements from their old ways.
I think that group feels like RS2 was great, and it was their nostalgic period (2008 - 2012), and RS3 is so far away from the 2012ish period (especially after The World Wakes), and so far away from the OSRS and 2005 - 2012 gameplay experiences that RS3 isn't where they feel happy either.
Ultimately, the game belongs to everyone that plays it. So, I'm happy for the game to incorporate those elements (or to leave them behind entirely). But, I do think the community needs to have an open conversation about what could be worked in, what couldn't be worked in, what constitutes empty nostalgia and what was actually a valuable addition to the game.
>The biggest domino that could fall and may impact the title race: Kyle Lowry. There is a portion of Raptors personnel, league sources said, that believes the franchise should bid its beloved All-Star farewell and begin Toronto's next chapter in earnest.
>"There's a time capsule for everybody and everything," said one Western Conference executive, "and it's probably just time to move on."
>The Raptors, who still roster seven players from that 2018-19 title team, stand only 10-13 after a dreadful 2-8 start. Toronto never panicked, especially as four of those first eight losses were by five points or fewer. Nick Nurse's staff has developed rotation pieces in Yuta Watanabe and Deandre' Bembry of late, but the Raptors feel far removed from the Eastern Conference elites. None of Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Brooklyn or Boston would enjoy facing this current Toronto iteration as a low-seeded first-round opponent, but they wouldn't exactly fear them, either.
>It may be that Lowry, who's a free agent after this season, is the best trade chip for the Raptors' front office. He remains their third-leading scorer, top creator and a lethal three-point shooter, but his expansive role inevitably caps everyone else's.
>The Raptors just committed $85 million over four years to retain Fred VanVleet as the franchise's long-term ball-handler. If his 2019 Finals performance and 54-point outburst last week in Orlando were any indication, he's capable of handling full-time creation abilities. Of course, he still benefits from Lowry's own playmaking, but Toronto drafted another crafty combo guard in Malachi Flynn with the 29th pick in November for a reason.
>"Young guys can't blossom until you move on from Lowry because the pecking order is still set from the top," one Eastern Conference coach said. "If you're trying to reshape your roster, one thing you need to avoid is duplication."
>The Clippers might have a cleaner path to landing Lowry. "I think Toronto would want to send him West," one Eastern team official said, "but Masai is going to do a deal that brings back the best package." The Clippers might be able to provide both.
> **Los Angeles has made it widely known that Lou Williams is available, sources said, and there's a cohort in that front office ready to move on from Patrick Beverley as well—although the Clippers ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
Background: I (27F) am getting married in October. My wedding already was postponed a year due to COVID. I am not the biggest fan of babies, but have a nephew(1.5yr), a niece (1yr), and now my sister (30F) is pregnant again and will have a 2 month old at the wedding as well. Both her and my brother in law (30M) are in the wedding party as maid of honor and groomsman. My brother (29M) and sister in law (29F) are also both in the wedding party as groomsman and bridesmaid. I also have a younger sister (26) who is a bridesmaid.
Okay here it goes...I decided that I don't really want kids present during the hair and makeup portion of the wedding. I get stressed really easily and having 2 kids possibly crying and being fussy doesn't sound like a stress free environment to me. I want to be able to focus on the day and not feel like something else is taking away from it. The kids will still be in pictures, will probably be in some part of the ceremony and then are invited to the reception as well. It would literally only be a few hours in the morning that I am requesting not to have them around. My brother and sister in law made arrangements to accommodate this request for their own sanity before I even said anything to them. Her parents who are invited to the wedding will watch nephew. I haven't brought up my request to my sister yet, but my brother in law's parents are also invited to the wedding, so there are plenty of people who could watch the kids during these few hours.
When I brought up not having kids present for this part to my mom she was unhappy to say the least, called me a bridezilla, and hung up the phone. If grandkids are around, my mom drops everything to cater to them no matter the situation. She claims she wouldn't do this on the wedding day and would pay attention to me, but from past experience I know this isn't true. I don't want to be selfish or mean, but I feel like it's not unreasonable to have this request for my own wedding. When talking to my mom, you would have thought I told her I wanted to un invite my sister, brother in law, and kids from the whole wedding day.
Is my request to not have kids around for a few hours while getting ready with hair and makeup completely unreasonable? My sister in law and brother are on my side and don't see the big deal, but my mom is making me feel like I'm the scum of the earth for my request. She wants to be the one to talk to my sister and I know that's not going to go well.
So I have a basic understanding of light and it's duality and what not. But I was wondering when a photon hits an object and reflects off, say a mirror, does it impart some of its energy and move off or does a photon only ever release all its energy or else bounces off an object? Apologies if I have phrased this poorly, found it hard to articulate exactly what I was getting at
I think this perspective needs to be shared more, and it will also likely give us an additional push to help keep people committed deep into next week and beyond. Throughout all of this, I've felt compelled to remember two key facts:
We are the good guys in this situation
We are not the littlest fish in the room
Point 1 is obvious to basically the whole world right now — our diamond hands have been forged under the pressure of cold, ruthless, faceless billionaires trying hard to squash us. No arguments from almost anyone on this point.
Point 2, though, is easy to overlook. This whole thing is about taking back from the greedy ultra-rich and redistributing the wealth to the common folk. Still, this leaves out a part of the picture. Just about everyone who has a brokerage account with a few grand they're willing to lose is, on the grand scale, relatively fortunate. There are billions of people worldwide who couldn't imagine ever risking five grand, and many of them couldn't imagine making that much in the first place. Tons of our fellow citizens are starving, wondering how to make ends meet — especially right now, in the middle of a pandemic with crazy unemployment. I know I'm lucky to be secure enough to focus my energy on this for hours a day.
I've been here since around 2014 and I love this community. Now we have an opportunity to do some good, and to simultaneously show the world that our money is, literally, where our mouth is: that we truly believe in the principle of not being excessively greedy, and allowing those in less fortunate positions to share in the wealth. This is why I'm committing to donating at least 5% of my profits to St Jude Children's Hospital, and another 5% to Water.org, after I sell GME for $42069 a share. Who's in?
I fully expect to get pushback for this, but here goes.
Workhorse (WKHS) is a self-promotion scheme more than anything else. It has a history of making grandiose claims of massive contracts with big respectable corporations, yet somehow they never see revenue or sales from them. And finally, the USPS has zero interest in dealing with WKHS, because they already kicked them out of the contract bid before.
In short, there is a near-zero chance that WKHS will see any significant portion of the USPS contract.
Part 1: History of Self Promotion
Part 2: The USPS Contract
Part 3: WKHS Manufacturability
Part 4: Positions or Ban
PART 1: HISTORY OF SELF PROMOTION
WKHS has a history of claiming big contract wins. Yet time and time again, these contracts never materialize to any significant sales. Lets review:
I (22f) and bf “John”( 23m) have lived together for 2 years. We live in TN and have a 2 bed, 2 bath 950sq ft apartment. Water is 25$ and included in our rent so we only pay for our electric. Utilities usually run between $60-$80. Our highest utility bill was $99 until recently- and I was out of town for that whole month. I say that to say that John refuses to ration utilities. These past 3 months the bills were $127, $153, and $207.
To me that is insane, when it’s completely preventable. He never turns lights off, I have to go behind him and do it and remind him daily. But what’s messing us up is heat.
We are on opposite schedules. I am a full time student and work full time outside the home so am usually only home from 5pm or so to 7am. John is a full time student doing online classes. He is not working by choice and pays his 50% with his savings and money from grandma. He wakes up around noon, does some school and then games until 4 to 5 am.
He refuses to turn the heat off. He won’t use a blanket or put more layers on and so I don’t think it’s acceptable. as soon as he wakes up, turns the heat on. Agrees to not use the heat, but as soon as I leave the house will turn the heat on. As soon as I fall asleep will turn the heat on and I end up waking up sweaty cause it’s hot as hell to me. He knows the bills have risen but it doesn’t seem like he gives a rats ass.
Today we fought because it was 72 degrees in the apartment and he still turned the heat on to 80 degrees. I literally grew up in a house where my mom always got hot flashes so we kept it 65 year round. I think 80 is hell and unreasonable. So I told him that I will no longer pay over $60 for my utilities. Looking at last years bills around this time of year our average bill was $80. So I was only paying $40. So I added $20 thinking it would be fair and told him I will not pay over $60 for utilities.
He was pissed, says that this my house to and I need to pay half. And I will for this months bill but after this month I will only pay $60. He says I work full time and he doesn’t work so I am trying to make him broke. I think if he won’t compromise then he needs to pay.
That kid's screwed
there’s no WAY i would give up rice so i just let myself have a 300 cal bowl of it with soy sauce and it satisfies me for hours!! same goes for 300-400cal portions of medjool dates & nut butter. what about you guys? or am i alone in this lol
Chips were my downfall. I was always overweight, but after highschool I moved out from my parents house with ZERO idea of what nutrition was, and into an extremely stressful period of my life. It was also across the street from a corner store. the perfect storm.
On average, I'd go through a bag and a half of family-sized chips every day. On top of whatever terrible takeaway dinner I had, and starbucks in the morning. Looking back on it, that is far too much. Seeing people pull out a bag of chips, eat some, then put it into the pantry for LATER was always insane to me. I almost found it funny. Why would you only eat some if you could eat them all???
It quickly turned into a comfort. The crunchiness and familiar flavours calmed me down in the hectic life I had grown into. And I kept going on like that for a while.
A few years later, I'm almost 100lbs less and a whole new person, but still I have never sat down with a bag of chips without finishing it. Obviously it happens FAR less often. (Maybe every 2 months when I get suuuper lazy) Last night, I had some calories left over in my budget. My boyfriend popped open a bag of chips and I sat down beside him. I was nervous because I honestly don't trust myself around chips.
So I grabbed a bowl, grabbed my scale, and poured out 50 grams of chips. WAY more than I thought I would get, putting it in a bowl makes it look SO much bigger. And I found myself enjoying the chips more when I only had a few of them, vs when blindly shoving my hand in a bag.
I felt super accomplished. I FEEL super accomplished. I had my favourite snack and didn't go "off track" for the day, and it completely quenched my craving and I feel more confident around a food I usually overindulge in.
Hope everyone has a good day and doesn't eat a bazillion calories worth of chips!
We’re all cured!
Whenever someone commits a terrible act of violence we always try to find some logical reasons, like a rough childhood, bad influences, money, a crime of passion etc. But the truth is, some people will face the same hardships or grow up in the very same environments and will become completely different persons.
I truly believe that many people in our societies all over the world are in fact psychopaths, which is why so many people commit senseless acts of violence.
Now we could argue all night about what triggers their psychopathic tendencies, for example an upper middle class psychopath who had a great childhood is probably less likely to commit murder because there's less triggers in his environment. Meanwhile a psychopath born in the ghetto in a violent environment is more likely to succumb to psychopathic behavior. Which is why you see way more violent crimes in poor environments.
But at the end of the day, nothing else explains in my opinion why some people will cross the line and other's don't. Other than the fact that some people are complete psychopaths.
I'll probably get hate or criticized for this but I've learned some things living in the frozen hell of the north that might help some of my brothers and sisters there in Austin. I know how bad it is their and that Texas isn't built for this weather so here is just a few tips I've learned up here.
1st: Layers. Yes I know you've heard this but your type of layers matter as well, pajamas and sweats are your friends. If you don't have snow pants, and until this year why would you, three or four pairs of pajamas and then jeans. Also socks for both your feet and hands. It sounds stupid but stupid is better than frozen.
2nd: Water. Please don't waste electricity but if you have a gas stove or a fireplace melt some snow and make hot water bottles to put in your blankets or to drink.
3rd: Alcohol: despite what you might have heard alcohol does not warm you it actual thins your blood and makes you more susceptible to hypothermia
4th:Car. if you have a car and a well ventilated area, and can afford gas. your car can get quite toasty inside.
Pleas stay safe this wasn't meant as a mocking post or anything like that just some stuff I've learned trying to stay warm up here
But even after deleting the tweet and trying his hardest to be apologetic, he still was let go.
