I have been living with my new wife and stepdaughter for about 6 months now. She’s 19, almost 20, and I have three sons aged 18, 16 and 15. She’s a really good kid and she’s a good influence on my sons, I really enjoy having her around. My wife and her daughter moved into my house and sold theirs. My stepdaughters father isn’t present in her life, nor is my sons’ mother. All four children share a bathroom.
My sons have never lived for a long period of time with a woman, nor have any of them had long term girlfriends. They had short visitation periods when they were younger but never longer than an hour, so living with two women has been unusual for them.
My eldest son, 18, came to me last week and told me that his stepsister disposes of her used sanitary products in the trash can they share, but doesn’t use toilet roll or sandwich bags to disguise what they are, and it makes him uncomfortable which I think is reasonable. My sons are teenage boys and don’t want to see their stepsiste... keep reading on reddit ➡
The term "Genuine Leather" is a marketing term to sell the lowest quality leather possible.
When purchasing a leather product, look for full grain leather or top grain leather instead. These will provide a much higher quality cut of leather that will look and feel much better and last for much longer.
Let's break down how Quibi loses on nearly every value proposition just to highlight how ridiculous their whole enterprise is. The 4 P's of marketing that they teach in high school business class is more than enough to tear the entire thing apart.
Product: The brand itself is really poor, and relies way too much on the credentials and industry connections of its leaders than it does on the quality of the product. The turnstyle technology is very likely stolen, and the content is overwhelmingly mediocre aside from a small handful of tolerable shorts. The fact that Quibi literally denies users the capacity to do anything social with the app is so out of touch, the only way I can rationalize this is if Katzenberg and Whitman have been in quarantine since 2003. Even virus-filled Russian anime streaming sites let me cast to my TV. The app looks good, but existing only in 1 modality when all other competitors offer mutlimodal streaming options is just a big fat F.
Price: Quibi is n... keep reading on reddit ➡
Edit: For those asking what was said, here's the screenshots of his post and the response to an email that was sent to him by a customer who voiced their disagreement with his original post.
He has since issued an apology about what he said but only after all of the outrage and things began to look bad for him (albeit before GC pulled his products.) Whether you want to take his apology seriously or not is up to you.

This is an excerpt from Bobby Burack's weekly sports media mailbag. He answered 2 NBA related questions.
“Do you expect NBA ratings to ever recover or will cord cutting prevent it from ever happening?”
I don’t fault cord-cutting as much as others. Cord-cutting has negatively impacted all TV products but the NBA was the only league that has nosedived the past two seasons.
The NBA’s problems are unfixable. It’s a social media driven league that answers to Twitter users. It’s also a bad regular season product. The games do not matter. Seeding has little to no impact in the playoffs. And, more importantly, three teams matter at most each season.
The vast majority of the storylines before the conference finals are a waste of time. And fans have grown to realize that. Streaks and momentum are so meaningless that star players take games off to manage the load. If they don’t care, why would the fans?

This is a sweeping generalization so while it applies to most situations, obviously if you click on something with 90% 1-star ratings it's not going to apply.
5-star reviews are often obtained by the company prompting or rewarding the customer for feedback, and since they have nothing to complain about, they just hit the button. They may not reflect an actual exemplary product.
1-star reviews are often the result of a mistake or incident that's not common overall. If you try reading these you'll be flooded with complaints about shipping cost, an accident caused by the individual who packed their order, or some other random occurrence that is extremely unlikely to happen to you. Very little product information.
3-stars often reflect the people who got what they wanted without any real incidents, but found the product to be lacking in some way. You will usually find lengthy paragraphs here describing the details of their likes and dislikes, and not just one sentence exclaiming "I WAS... keep reading on reddit ➡
For everybody panicking about whatever's broken, just remember Legends of Runeterra is not official.

Context: I work at a local supermarket as a low-wage cashier and this happened at the beginning of this year. Our supermarket chain decided that in 2020 there should be less people on the workfloor because they wanted to reduce wage-costs. Now that wouldn't be such a bad idea if they didn't apply it to busy days, and I work on the busy days. You should also know that at my supermarket we have a rule that the 4th person waiting in line gets all their stuff in the basket completely for free unless all regular checkouts are occupied (in our supermarket there are 3 regular checkouts but usually they are not all occupied).
It was a busy saturday and I was the only one behind a checkout. My boss is currently working and also another fellow emplyee. It's around 10AM and usually it gets really busy around 10AM and 12PM. There are 3 customers at my checkout and I start to get a bit nervous and ask thr... keep reading on reddit ➡
From the German tech site golem (translated by deepl.com)
The SPD and the Greens have agreed in Hamburg on the entry into the Microsoft exit. The city is to be digitally sourced.
After the cautiously announced return to open source software in Munich by the SPD and the Greens, more free software is to be used in the administration of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg in the future. This was also agreed upon by the SPD and the Greens during their coalition negotiations in Germany's second largest city. The coalition agreement is to be presented today, June 2, 2020. The parties still have to agree to the treaty.
As the Greens in Hamburg announced on Twitter, the agreement includes the "entry into exit Microsoft". In a statement on the results, Carsten Brosda (SPD) said that the city administration should "not become unilaterally dependent". The parties involved therefore want to tackle the problem of the so-called vendor lock-in.
*In addition, the Hanseatic... keep reading on reddit ➡
EDIT: I didn’t realize how large a conversational piece this would become. I learned a few things from others about silicone sensitivities and that some people don’t have to deal with them. Not only do i need to start checking my sunscreens but allll topical products! shampoo, conditioner, face masks, sheet masks, setting mists etc. i would LOVE to hear from you if you see results from omitting cyclopentasiloxane. feel free to dm me! i’m not new to skincare but i’m new to having clear skin. —
Hi! i’ve posted before a few months ago but i wanted to share. if you started developing painful cystic acne, check the ingredients of the products you’re using. i discovered that i have a bad reaction to the ingredient cyclopentasiloxane that causes cystic acne near my mouth and jawline. i got rid of all my products that had it (foundations, primers, lotions) and my skin cleared right up in two weeks. (i had clearish skin to start before these breakouts but started using new makeup products).... keep reading on reddit ➡

Thanks to the 2020 CARES Act, you can now use your HSA/FSA to purchase feminine hygiene products (pads, tampons, and menstrual cups) along with specific over the counter drugs. I recommend checking all qualified expenses with your HSA/FSA provider. I checked my provider's full list today and am realizing how many things I can use pre-tax income to purchase (pain relievers, reading glasses, allergy medicine, bandaids, etc.).
I know this will be completely subjective. For me the tackiest are the Dior Charms/bracelets that contain lip-gloss ect. I don't know about you but the remind me of the cheap kids make necklaces etc. What grown adult actually wears a chunky bracelet filled with gloss?
For a brand like Dior I feel like these are not classy or luxury at all. So tell what are your high end cringe make up products?

I came home to find my mother in law washing her car with a bottle of water and the dish sponge. No soap necessary.
She couldn’t appreciate how offended I was nor grasp how this was less than ideal.
After years of watching Kdramas I finally gave in to the PPL and bought the Maxim coffee sticks that I’ve seen in countless amounts of shows. It was okay, tasted like any other coffee sticks that I’ve had but I’m no coffee connoisseur.
Has anyone else given into PPL before? If you did, how was your experience?
