Led by who else but...Bryn Forbes who was a human flame thrower doing his best Steph Curry impression just cooking whatever he’s throwing up.
The man is Steph Curry on steroids at this point, and the Bucks are blowing out the Heat like they are a G-League Team.
>"I'm not going to over-complicate things: the Clippers can't do anything with Luka. He can get whatever he wants against whomever he wants. Luka went hunting in the 4th quarter."
Luka was definitely unstoppable in game 2, will be interesting if the Clips adapt in game 3
Apple reported a blowout quarter on Wednesday, announcing companywide sales up 54% higher than last year, and significantly stronger profits than Wall Street expected.
Apple did not issue official guidance for what it expects in the quarter ending in June.
Here’s how Apple did:
Incredible beat by Apple, beats expected revenue by over $12 billion for the quarter.

By Hema Parmar(Bloomberg) -- Gabe Plotkin’s Melvin Capital Management, the hedge fund that lost billions of dollars in part by shorting GameStop Corp. shares, ended the first quarter down 49%. Melvin slid 7% last month, according to people with knowledge of the matter, after gaining almost 22% in February. In January, the fund dropped 53% on GameStop and other short bets. A spokesman for the firm declined to comment.

Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, Epic is not allowing any in-person Rocket League events until Quarter 2 2022, or "until the global impact from COVID-19 has diminished." Not only would this mean no international majors for the next season of RLCS, but other tournament organizers will not be allowed to host LANS even if all proper safety guidelines are being followed.
Seeing as many other esports are hosting LAN events, this news is extremely disappointing, and I am concerned for what this might mean for the future of the esport. Will orgs be willing to keep paying big money for rosters knowing we won't have any LAN events for up to another year? I am interested to see what any pro players or people within the scene have to say about this.

He nearly brought the Wizards back from a 16 point deficit, mans was absolutely electric in the quarter and along with Bertans and Rui absolutely put the team on his back. Incredible performance.
In my small city there is a comic book shop that is having a "pay what you want" book sale, where you can get whatever you want for however much you feel like paying. They had a lot of cool stuff, so I took some books and went to the storefront. I told the owner there were some great books and asked if there was a minimum he wanted me to pay. He said "no, just get rid of this", and so for the stack I paid like $2.50.
I went the next week, got another stack, and paid with a quarter. He joked that "you got all that stuff and you thought it was worth a quarter", I laughed, and moved on.
I come in THIS week, and have yet another stack with $2 worth of quarters in my pocket. Some friends of the store owner have also been milling around and decided to buy some books. I look around a little bit more while they're checking out. One of them says "I'll pay $1 to make up for that guy who only paid with a quarter! That's fucked up!" My face flushed red.
After they left, I said to make up for paying with just a quarter last time, I'll pay with $6 for the books. The owner had not recognized me, laughed, and said that he understood why I did it and felt conflicted, etc. He was very nice about the whole thing, and again reiterated there was no minimum.
I told this story to some friends of mine and they said I was "obnoxious" for paying with just a quarter and that with what I did I should expect some flack. Honestly I don't think I agree; he said there wasn't a minimum, and I paid what I wanted. But I wanted some more perspectives. So: AITA?
Edit: Well, then, I guess the judgement is pretty one-sided towards "asshole" already lol. And honestly, after reading the replies, and thinking about what I did, I agree. It was pretty disrespectful, and considering just how tough it is for comic book shops and used bookstores already, I took advantage of their kindness, unwitting or not. When I go back next time, as one commenter suggested, I will pay a fairer price.
Edit 2: I am not making this edit to change judgement, but based on the comments there seems to have been miscommunication on MY part about what the content of the sale was. I'm sorry.
They are a bunch of old, used science fiction/fantasy books that he has had in storage since about the 80s from a book store he used to own at the time, he has apparently thousands of them. E.g., Frederick Pohl, Gene Wolfe, etc. Not old comic books. Thank you all for the lively discussion btw!
This is beyond belief. Incredibly clutch down the stretch and carried this team to victory, scored 49 points and had to face amazing defense. Source
Edit: minor mistake, he was +13 not +11
So i was looking at the Deckplans of Rick Sternbach the other day and realized he has two Captains Quarters in it.
One on Deck 8 in the Saucer section where Captain Picard has his.
And also an alternate Captains Quarters on Deck 20 in the Stardrivesection.
So i wondered, what could be the reason for a Captain to choose to have his/her Quarters in the Stardrivesection, further away from the Bridge? So maybe you have Ideas?
In the eliksni quarter a servitor ball spawns after a minute or 2 and was wondering if theres a possible use for it in the area? Or is it just set dressing
Monster quarter from the MVP favorite. Most points in a quarter for him
I won't spoil anything, but I found two new things of Eido dialogue in Eliksni Quarter. They're right where you jump up into the main area, you can't miss them. She basically just talks about the events that transpired this week. Figured I'd post, as I haven't seen anyone else post about it yet.
Edit: Found a third one. It's at the one that was about the Traveler.
Please do. Like, damn. Bungie is knocking the world-building and storytelling outta the park this season.
