I live, work, and volunteer in Wilmington, Delaware, a city that suffers from highly concentrated racial and wealth inequality. For years, I worked within the system to make my city and state better: I tutored and mentored young students, served on the board of a local nonprofit that runs after-school programs for Delaware girls, and lobbied my elected officials to support policies that would prioritize the needs of people, not the profits of corporations and special interests. I am running for office because our current system does not work for the majority of people. I believe that everyone deserves a good education, healthcare, a place to call home, and clean air and water. I am running for Senate to guarantee a dignified standard of living for all through Medicare for All, a homes guarantee, universal public education from Pre-K to trade school and college, workplace democracy, ending mass incarceration, and a Green New Deal. Instead of valuing bipartisan compromise that harms the... keep reading on reddit ➡
Asking here because it’s blown up in my family and my husband is also really mad at me for being a part of it.
So I have a twin sister (26 both of us) and we live only 20 min apart. She recently got married to her boyfriend of 4 years.
Two weekends ago she asked me to go over to help with a “project” she had in mind. I get there and find that my sis basically bought a TON of new clothes for her new husband. Some background, my new BIL has a really good, professional office job in tech but dresses atrociously. Like honestly so bad people have definitely taken pictures of him in public. His go-to look outside of work is like cut off jorts, sleeveless tees, or raggedy sweatshirts with holes in them. He’s also incredibly protective of this “look” because he doesn’t see anything wrong despite being a 30 year old fully grown man. My sis has had countless fights over this, since he dresses like this to family outings and completely embarrassed her in front of our entire extended family. He... keep reading on reddit ➡
Logan Paul Apology but I replace "apologize" with "cum"
I've made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgement and I don't expect to be forgiven. I'm simply here to cum. So what we came across that day on the woods was obviously unplanned and the reactions you saw on tape were raw, they were unfiltered. None of us knew how to react or how to feel. I should have never posted the video. I should have put the cameras down, and stopped recording what we were going through. There's a lot of things I should have done differently, but I didn't, and for that from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry. I want to cum to the internet, I want to cum to anyone who's seen the video, I want to cum to anyone who has been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But, most importantly, I want to cum to the victim and his family. For, my fans, who are defending my actions, please don't, they do not deserve to be defended. The goal of my content is always to entertain, to push the... keep reading on reddit ➡
House of Highlights does the best they can but I don't only want to watch the Lakers and people that scored 50. I want to watch Duncan Robinson score 19 points but the content is unavailable now. NBA should have a platform to watch every individual players highlights, and every game. Obviously YouTube is an easy way to monetize that content but I'd also accept a small subscription fee for the service. Just send odd that they'd remove all of that content with no plan to replace it.
I know I likely am, but the extend of which I'm unsure about.
My son is almost 17. This Christmas we bought him an expensive computer gaming chair, as he plays a lot of online multiplayer shooters. My son has some anger issues, which he's currently in therapy for, and these shooters tend to bring out his temper more than normal. However, for the past few months he's been keeping it together well, so I figured the chair might be a fair present.
I was wrong, because the day after Christmas he was gaming, started to have bad luck and apparently people in-game were fucking with him because he was losing his patience. This culminated in him screaming insults and then picking up his chair and slamming it into the ground, breaking the back of it.
After talking him down, we had a very serious conversation about him no longer being allowed to play multiplayer games while under my roof until his therapist feels comfortable with his progress, talked about coping mechanisms, etc. However, I m... keep reading on reddit ➡
LeVar Burton has everything one would want in a host of Jeopardy:
He was on Star Trek so nerds love him.
He was host of Reading Rainbow, he’s done a lot for children’s education.
Great voice and very intelligent.
nobody can replace Alex but LeVar is a venerable, upstanding individual, who would come the closest to maintaining the prestige and quality that Jeopardy is famous for.
He’s been using the same pillow for 20+ years, WITHOUT a pillow case. It’s oily, and stays in place when you fold it because it’s so full of filth. There are multiple holes in it, and the filling (which I assume used to be white) is yellow and brown. It isn’t an expensive pillow, he’s just used to it and doesn’t want change. I was going to throw it in the washer today, but I think it would disintegrate. I’ve tried to get him to get a new one, but he said he doesn’t want a new one, just loves his old one. I can smell it when I’m next to it, and I think it’s the most disgusting thing in the world. Would I be the asshole if I throw it away and get him a new one anyways? I think he would actually like it, he just doesn’t like change or spending money on things that he finds unnecessary. I tried finding the exact brand, but the tags no longer have words on them.
The fights are fast-paced, fun, and require actual skill rather than memorizing patterns. There are no annoying one-hit KO attacks that are spammed, no waiting around for a long time doing nothing (looking at you HBH) and are all-around much more enjoyable to do. When all the other Agito fights come out, I'd much rather grind them for weapons then go back to HDT's.
I'll try and keep this short: I recently got a new place and have been considering replacing my old Craigslist furniture I've accumulated, but I'm trying to decide if it's worth it. None of the furniture has anything structurally wrong with it - I just don't like it.
Take my couch for example. It's ugly, doesn't match anything, and the faux leather sticks to you when you sit on it for a while. I can get a new couch from Ikea that looks good, fits well with the apartment, and is more comfortable, but it's $800 to get what I want.
Is it worth it to spend that money on something I don't really need, but want? I know it would be smarter to invest the $800, but I'm wondering the value of having a living space I truly enjoy being in.
TL:DR bf brother is staying with us until he deploys, ruined a few of my VS bras, some cashmere sweaters, and a pair of jeans in the washer/dryer and now I want him to replace them.
I(28f) have a shared 2 bdr/2 ba apartment with my bf(30m) his brother "T"(25m) started staying with us last month bc he deploys in 3 months. If he didn't he would have to renew his lease for that small span of time and then break the lease or he would have to move into the barracks, plus we have space. We are all either in (bf and T) or out (me) but working a GS position on the base. So everyone has a steady decent income though I make a bit more than both. So there is no issue with no one being able to afford things.
So when T moved in we explained the house rules, no crazy parties, whatever you finish off food-wise you replace, responsible for his BA/BDR and keeping them clean. Generally, you're an adult clean up after yourself no one is anyone's maid and be considerate. I also added my own rule don't... keep reading on reddit ➡
TL:DR: Just make more Vet/Elite/Named enemies spawn instead of making them even spongier/Spikier damage wise.
This=More dynamic game that uses more advanced enemy types instead of just buffing enemy health/damage.
To be honest, Reds are really Braindead AI wise. They are good for newbies to train, but I honestly prefer fighting the enhanced AI of Veterans and Elites. Also, the unique qualities of named units makes them very interesting to encounter.
You can't just spawn more enemies, as the game has engine and graphics limitations, you also have to think of MinSpecsPC/Xbox/PS users.
SO instead, Uprank enemies as the difficulty scaling goes up.
It's an easy trick that lets you make the game harder without making players feel weak. Especially because in Division 2 Vets and Elites LOOK way cooler than Reds.
So how it works: Normal-Hard: current typical scaling. HP/Damage scaling.
Note: the below assumes Hard Difficulty Spawn Ratios. Most enemies are usually reds, some... keep reading on reddit ➡
please comfort me
Honestly, who wouldn't love to see all these guys and ladies competing instead of analyzing? Who wouldn't want to see the scripts flip? Let's see Zach Lowe's hustle... Stephen A Smith taking it hard to the hole... Leigh Ellis wizzing the ball around for a very solid play... Chris Broussard airballing a jumpshot... and we can have players do the live commentary and post game presser. This would be gold.
Make it happen next year Mr. Silver.
I’ve recently decided to give up caffeine due to heart and adrenal issues. Wondering what other people find the most effective as far as focus and energy without being over stimulated.
I am STEAMING mad about this and everyone around me is pretending like I'm being a cunt. I'll let you people decide. First, I sew my own clothes. My husband and I live in a very nice house with a HUGE room filled with gorgeous sunlight for my hobbies.
We hosted Thanksgiving. My SIL and her three kids were staying with us, despite that she always treats me like shit for preferring pets over kids.
On Tuesday, as I went to do some last-minute shopping, my SIL texted about a tablecloth for her kids to put down while they did Christmas ornaments. I walked her through the closet with the VERY. CLEARLY. MARKED. TABLECLOTHS.
I got home 3 hours later and checked in on everyone. When I went into the hobby room where everyone was gathered, I saw it. SHE PULLED MY FUCKING ATELIER BRUNETTE FABRIC FROM THE CLOSET. MARKED. FABRIC. This particular style was discontinued several years ago, but I snagged for $25/yard. I had 6 yards. Let me note that fabric is EXPENSIVE and I have always sourced from... keep reading on reddit ➡
One of the most challenging areas that the Roman and Ottoman empires faced every time they went to war with the Persian empires, was logistics. It was incredibly difficult to maintain a large army through the harsh climate and replace losses so far from home. This was one of the chief reasons that the Ottoman Empire was simply unable to push the Safavids back across the Zagros mountains for very long.
How did Alexander overcome this challenge and what did he do differently here? How did he replace his losses so far from home and continue pushing all of the way into Asia?
Could be a case of double backfired malicious compliance? You be the judge.
During university I lived in a shared house with 4-8 other students. It was a fun, chill group, we often partied together, cooked together, shared bills and chores easily, etc. I was loving it, having lived with a number of horrible roommates in in the past. I had been in this house about 6 months and planned to finish out my studies there, which would have been another year and a half.
One roommate, Janice, actually held the lease and was kind of the "house boss". That is, she organized cleaning, groceries, bills, and whatnot, including mediating roommate drama extremely well, and as she was extremely kind and fair about it all we were happy to have her in that role. For example once there was a growing tension about the growing number of fruit flies and kitchen moths (?) flying around. Tempers were getting high about who was letting this pestilence grow, but Janice stepped in and solved the problem. In fron... keep reading on reddit ➡
