We adopted Effie, a retired racing greyhound in March (just before corona started kicking off badly in the UK) and I finally got the papers from the adoption centre with her info on.
She used to race on a track nearby, and her name was Arksey Flash. She only ever did 40 races, and she won her last one but apparently they retired her because she just wasnt very interested in it!
We also found out her birthday, which we unfortunately missed, but hopefully after the coronavirus pandemic is over, my family will all be able to meet her and celebrate her gotcha day and birthday all in one!
Shes a really good girl, and adopting her is probably one of the best things I've ever done!
Since Bungie seems to really like their token system, they could introduce tokens that can be redeemed at Amanda Holiday. for SRL gear.
1st place awards: Gold medal and 5 SRL tokens.
2nd place awards: Silver medal and 3 SRL tokens.
3rd place: Bronze medal and 1 SRL token.
4th-6th place: 1 SRL token.
Incentivize competition AND participation at the same time, they could even include a Ghost shell or Sparrow for 100 SRL tokens. Just leave Eververse out of it for once (wishful thinking).
Edit: Thank you the award kind redditors !
I have been hesitating to write this for a very long time. I say to myself it’s because I don’t have the time. It’s also because , ultimately, I didn’t think it would do any good for this sub but I’m going to put this in bullet point form, in the hope that we can have a debate about some of the issues that have been prevalent with regards to Hamilton and Race in F1.
On Hamilton and why George Floyds is important:
• Hamilton is the first black F1 WDC , and is one of the legends of all time. This is a reality all people have to acknowledge and not separate. Being both is a massive burden on Hamilton. Part of his growth as a man has been growth into a realisation of who he is. We have to acknowledge who he is.
• Being black or of colour in most countries is difficult. In most western countries there are institutional barriers to your progress. What does that mean? The system is built with additional bits in it to stop people who aren’t from certain backgrounds. Imagine being in a ga... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yeah that's right, pal. Don't knock. Don't text your mate to tell em you're there. Don't call em. Don't arrange beforehand. Nah, just rock up outside and blare your horn for five full seconds. That's a much better idea, displaying the full power of human common sense and consideration.
Humans are Weird – Racing Circuit
“Is anybody going to investigate the noises coming from the disused supply bay?” Base Commander Four Trills asked of the office at large.
“Not willingly,” Tikt’skt replied after a far longer pause than Trisk fastidiousness required. “And the fact that you haven’t gone to investigate it yourself suggests you know exactly why.”
The Trisk made a point of turning his body away and began to groom his optical sensory hairs with his hindmost pair of legs. Commander Four Trills rubbed his wing hooks over his sensory horns in sympathy. This did have to be dealt with. He chirped in his most authoritative tone.
Every sentient in the room turned their attention to the human sitting at a data console, typing energetically away at a report. The seconds dragged out while they waited... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m Shayna Texter and I am a Red Bull KTM Factory Racing professional in American Flat Track (AFT). I first learned to ride motorcycles when I was three years old and began my racing career at 12. Coming from a family of racers, I have lived and breathed motorcycles since I was a child. In September 2011, I made history by being the first woman to ever win a professional flat track event. My career in racing continued to play a vital role in my life. In 2017, I joined the American Flat Track Singles Class and have earned 11 wins since – more than any Singles Class competitor to date.

I knew it was because of the news.
The cars were bought directly from importers or were seized from criminals. They were all kept plain with the only thing showing their purpose being a small sign on the side. The unit was eventually disbanded in the early 2000s due to cost and also the fact many of the cars had been crashed during their duty.
Some of the cars used were: BMW M3 Е30 M5 Е34, Аudi RS2, Mеrсеdеs-Bеnz 190Е 2.3-16, Fоrd Siеrrа Соswоrth, Lаnсiа Dеltа HF Intеgrаlе and Thema 8.32, Pоrsсhе 911 Tаrgа 911 Turbо, Аlfа Rоmео 155 Q4 164 Turbо ,
edit: I found some greek news clips about the unit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE1QUkBoJ68 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsPoo4RU3qA . I also learned that the unit was tutored by a racing driver called Grigoris Nioras, who before that raced in the Panhellenic Rally championship in a Subaru WRX STI.
It's just so pleasing to play a AAA title which actually runs without a hitch and is extremely well optimised. It looks and sounds more stunning than any trailer could do justice, and the entire UX/UI design is extremely well though-out, where even the menu is surprisingly fun to navigate.
The first hour of the game is very impressive, it was pure unadulterated joy for me -- it's been a long time since I've felt that from a video game, especially racing games. Lately, I've been playing so many shooters and fast-paced strategy games, I really needed a game like this where I feel I can properly chill out without getting angry at anything, and I can even sit in Discord and chat with my friends while having something to do which doesn't too much of my attention away from the conversation.
I feel like a kid the night before Christmas.

I would be happy to pay just to be able to play some of these games again!
And some obscure games nearly lost to time:
It will probably go down to the wire on a 10 day event. You can check the XP ladder in this https://baconrad.github.io/poe-racing/
For those who dont know, you get 1 point for every level plus some bonus points for certain bosses. 3 for Awakener 8; 2 for Delve Vaal Boss; 1 For Shaper; 2 for Uber Elder and 2 for Uber Atziri.
Dying voids all your points, so you get 0.
RaizQT : Currently 98, will be 99 at the end of the race. Has killed the delve boss. So looking at 101 points in total. He died on his boss killer, so he will not be doing any more bosses as its too risky on his Archmage build.
Gucci : Similar situation as Raiz, 99 + Delve boss. 101 points, so it will likely be a straight XP race between them.

Steelmage : Currently 98, but will likely push 99 when he comes online. Has killed shaper and is still looking for the Delve boss. He has A8 ready and a build that can do it, but its a big risk with the ping and no voice lines on china
