Im not joking, this is literally it.
The only reason people care about what Kyrie has to say is because he plays basketball. They aren't here for his profound meditations on society or in-depth knowledge of Earth's geography lol
The protests and movement that many players care about will occur with or without the NBA occurring. If someone is dedicated to protesting, they aren't going to not go because the Pacers vs. Kings is on in a month and a half. And if that is a factor for them, the NFL's return would already accomplish this anyways.
If anything, by ceding ground to the NFL (and even the MLB, UFC, NHL, FIFA, etc. due to a void in sports available) basketball players will be put into the background because the biggest thing that makes people listen to them is now gone. That means the sport with the most black players has less prominence and is listened to less, which is awful for progress.
The real value that NBA players have to social activism is prominence in traditional media and through social media. Playing g... keep reading on reddit ➡
Me and my husband (both 32) have one daughter, who is three, and we decided to try again. We originally wanted two kids, as pregnancy is a bitch, and my birth with my daughter was BAAAD. We got lucky and guess who are having twin girls! I mean I feel like a whale, but it's worth it in the end.
My sister (34) got pregnant with her first child and our due dates were around the same time. Unfortunately, she lost her daughter a couple of weeks ago at 20 weeks. It was very traumatic, and I am not too certain of the details of what exactly happened, but her fertility was extremely damaged in the process.
She's been understandably sore about my pregnancy. Her loss has dominated our world, and has caused her to do questionable stuff like posting on her Instagram two days ago, 'so many ppl gone to heaven today, hope they give my daughter a hug from me.' She even asked if she could have one or both of my twins, as after all - 'you have a child already, and after all- you only want two kids, s... keep reading on reddit ➡
Every story deals with problems of some kind, of course, that's just the nature of drama. But those two movies are specifically about figuring out solutions, as opposed to being about interpersonal relationships or physical confrontations.
The primary action of the plot involves doing the math or figuring out solutions to problem after problem, watching the protagonists wrestle with an obstacle and figure out a solution so they can move forward.
Any other movies you'd recommend like that? (Doesn't have to be about astronauts, btw.)
Last year, I set a goal to read X number of books. I met my goal, and felt pretty pleased- I was reading more as a result of the concrete goal I had set, and I loved it! I set another goal this year, and I’ve found that using a specific number of books as my goalpost has disrupted my pleasure in reading. I’ve noticed myself hurrying through books instead of lingering and enjoying them just so I can get through them and get one step closer to my goal.
I love goal-setting, though, and I hope I can use it to help me read more and enjoy my reading more. Anyone have a similar experience? What are your reading goals that don’t center on how many books you’ve read?
I’d like to read more books with complex women characters whose life doesn’t revolve around babies or pleasing the men in their life. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Edit: Thank you so much for all the responses! I am blown away by all the terrific suggestions. I have a lot of reading to do while in quarantine!

I'm at the bottom of the barrel in terms of appearance, a 1/10. I always get rejected by everybody and I've never been able to be in a relationship ever in my life. People always lie to me by saying that I'm not ugly, but I am. They say looks don't matter, but looks do. Being attractive, simply, gives you an advantage over everybody else, of lower or of equal attractiveness. You are more likely to be accepted by an employer, you get paid more, everybody talks to you more, you're less likely to be ignored, you find relationships easier, you form friendships easier, and people would actually ask you out. You are less criticized by others and are accepted no matter your personality. You can approach people without looking like a creep or have it be considered as "sexual harassment". I however, get none of these advantages that attractive people do. In fact, the opposite of these happen to me. I hate the way I look and I'm going to forever be alone because of the simple fact, that I am una... keep reading on reddit ➡
Jewish culture, especially ashkenazi (european) jewish culture revolves around victimhood and oppression. Every holiday is about how some bad man wanted to kill us, or how we're not worthy of God's covenant. We even have a holiday called Tisha B'Av, which is literally just a day of remembrance for all the tragedies that have befallen the Jews.
The problem is that this victimhood has become the central tenet of jewish identity. We're always victims. It's why jews are such good comedians.
Is that what the blacks want? Do you want your generations raised in a culture of victimhood and tragedy? Black people like to believe themselves to be strong and fierce, empowered and powerful. But, the truth is they are a victimhood culture. Their entire identity revolves around weakness and poverty. They don't celebrate their resilience or ability to rise above oppression. To the contrary, they blame their individual and community failings on... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yo, I’ve decided to share with you a story that happened about 2 years ago.
One day me and two of my friends, let's call them Evan and Naomi (not their real names obviously), were out at the library at our local shopping center just hanging out. After about half an hour, we decided to get a bite to eat, nothing special, just Maccas (McDonalds) from the food court. For some context, Naomi and Evan both have food allergies so they need to make special orders to make sure that they don’t have a trip to the hospital.
While we were ordering our food, the lady behind us decided that after not even a minute of us ordering we were taking too long to order our food.
Karen: Ugh, hurry up.
Me: Huh? We just started ordering, calm down.
Evan finishy ordering and Naomi started ordering her food. Naomi hasn’t even gotten half way through ordering her food before Karen spoke again.
Karen: Why can’t you just hurry up, just say what you want like the rest of us

It’s cool to have a girlfriend,a boyfriend or a best friend,anyone you feel close to,but no matter how much you love them,no matter how much they love you,how much of a good person they are, they should still be people that you want in your life rather than people that you need in your life. I know this sounds harsh and i know,it’s hard to say even for me, but i’m not talking in an emotional way but simply talking from my experience.
Trust me,once that person isn’t available for you anymore,once that person stops talking to you,texting you,calling you like they used to. Once that person starts becoming distant and you can feel that you ain’t as close as you were before with these person and realize that you’re not as close as you thought you were with this person. That this person doesn’t feel the same way you feel for her. Once that person isn’t here for you anymore.

A few days ago BM tells my SO that she thinks "we" should consider leaving the country if a certain president is reelected. 2 years ago, it wasn't an option to move because BM wanted to live somewhere cheaper and SO wanted to keep the same school district for SD9 (I wanted to pick out a fresh house that BM didn't live in at one point). Then we all might need to move across the city so she can be closer to her new job. Then she transferred at work and now we're taking on more child care and transportation to accommodate her new schedule. And since SD9 thinks BM can do no wrong, we're always the bad guys for having boundaries.
Meanwhile, I've made it clear to SO that I want to move across the country, but I'm willing to stay put until SD is grown. SD9 has no chill and needs constant wrangling, so we really need the time we get away from her (used to be 50/50 but is now 60/40). So the extra things we're doing come out of the rare time we get alone together. BM is now taking classes so t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sorry original title was taken down for vague post but idk what else to say, its based off of a thing a juror said
Hey guys so i love sarah and tony and cops r us so i went on youtube and was watching the alliance and when they first formed it on ep 2/3 in this season (WaW)
Anyways after i watched that i decided to watch the jury speaks vids and was watching sarahs.
SO in ep 2/3 sarah says “ive known tony for 6 years i love the guy, and i knew people would too if they JUUST got to know him” she says this when they first speak about cops r us but shes not shown at all its just her voice over when tony is mucking around with the ladder
Then in the jury speaks vid she literally says the EXACT same thing word for word AND in the EXACT same tone and same pacing and i then compared and its literally the exact same
This leads me to believe that something sarah said out of game at ponderosa was shown in episode 2 (or 3) of season 40
Just thought that was cool

It revolves around me fuckers. You thought I didn’t know.
So I’m looking for something fluffy and cute and romantic and I find it a bit excessive when there’s a sex scene in almost every chapter. I really want it to be a story based where they both grow and learn about each other. Are there any like that?
Like, there's the vagina monologues. A lot of women positive artwork features a uterus shape. It feels to me like people are saying that the significance of a woman is in her genitalia. It's also pretty TERF-y imo. I'm a cis woman but i hate to see women being portrayed like their uterus is some magical woman thing that only women can have and is important to all women. Like I'd be less of a woman because I want to rip my uterus from my body. Like anyone with a uterus must be a woman and anyone without it is not a woman. Like the entirety of a woman's identity is centered around her uterus, her ability to reproduce. Like thanks for telling me my most useless organ is the most identifying part of me. Thanks for telling me that the organ that causes me the most physical and mental pain is the only thing that's making me special. Fuck that.

Ever since we found out we were expecting a beautiful boy my boyfriends mother has been nothing but trouble . Constantly arguing with me & trying to blame me for the lack of communication that she has with her son anyways .
We live on the other side of the country from her (thank god) , and now that it’s getting closer to my due date i seen messages of her begging for him to move back “home” and having her husband (not his father) convincing him to as well basically pick up and start a new life back home.
I basically got upset and said to my boyfriend that this isn’t there life or there choices . Our choices will effect our son and the only reason she’d like him to be home is to be closer to her . We’re adults now and starting our own family so why is it that she’s trying to tear ours apart.

First off, ramp is fine but a card like [[Growth Spiral]] is too good in UG decks currently especially when playing first. Then you have Nissa which we all know is a problem. Creating a 3/3 vigilant creature with haste that taps for a potential 2 Mana is an incredibly huge problem. Mana doublers should not exist in standard for 5 Mana and be one of the most difficult to remove permanents (planeswalkers) for a lot of colors. [[Uro]] I am less concerned about because it comes down at 3 mana, but when you are playing first and already have a ton of ramp on board you are just increasing the amount of cards since he also draws you a card.
Then we have red decks which are insanely fast right now and have everything a deck could want. They have psuedo ramp with [[Embercleave]] and [[Runaway Steamkin]], they have board wipe protection with [[Anax]], card "draw" with [[Light Up the Stage]] and [[Robber of the Rich]]. They have spells that are effective card advantage with [[Rimrock Knight]] an... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here are just a couple reasons:
The difference between a legendary weapon with a good anointed effect and a bad one (or no effect) is massive. A legendary shouldn't go from "best weapon in the game" to "NEVER EVER use" just because the anointed effect is bad.
Anointed effects promote poor mechanics. Does anyone really enjoy fisting the air to trigger anointed effects? Does anyone want to jump into an Iron Bear with the intention to immediately jump out? No. Of course not.
It severely hinders the number of usable items. It really gets old finding a shield and realizing it doesn't have "50% damage after action skill end."
You should never play the game with someone who's freshly hit max level. Even if they're the next coming of shroud himself, there's no reason to take them since they do 1/10th of your damage vs bosses.

It occurred to me to wonder how much about the KKK was known in 1890s Britain, how much of it was fact, and how much of it was mythology- that last wouldn't surprise me at all, considering how much Conan Doyle mythologizes the United States in his stories (with probably the most obvious example being the Mormon plotline in A Study in Scarlet).
By inference, it would have been something that was NOT well known- as an American in the 21st century, I obviously found the mystery incredibly easy to solve with the two facts of "southern plantation owner" and "KKK," so if Conan Doyle was writing a story that he wanted to dazzle his 19th century British readers with, he probably wouldn't have picked something that everyone could have put together easily. In this case, did he pick something deliberately obscure, or something which was reflected in popular knowledge/culture in Britain at the time but was still not completely obvious? Would the fact that the KKK had dissolved in 1869 mean that... keep reading on reddit ➡
My ROCD usually revolves around my partner's physical traits. It's like my mind goes into freak mode when I notice that the personal isn't that perfect (no one is). Even though I know I enjoy spending time with her and everything. It makes me feel like a dick and guilty (even though I'm physically attracted to them and I love their character). It makes me question weather or not I really like them. Sometimes I would make a mental issue out an imaginary flaw (like a girl having a perfect nose, and yet I would still somehow turn it into flaw). Recently I've been trying to limit physical glance even with new partners (before the blis stage is over) as the fear of having ROCD is absolutely horrifying. I'm 29 I've had countless relationships, each one of them effected by this. Now I'm with someone great and I just want to be able to stay with her. I don't want it to fall apart because of this thing. I realise that if I don't face it it will just get worse. I don't know how to face it.
He does this every single time and he loses every single time. He personally fought Kor Phaeron at Calth and would have died if Kor Phaeron wasn't also a master of idiot strategies. He personally fought Lorgar on Nuceria and did okay until Angron showed up and kicked his ass. Not having learned anything from this he went on to personally duel Fulgrim on his flagship and managed to die.
Apparently dying wasnt enough to make him realise this was an idiot strategy as he then went on to personally fight Magnus, who completely out matched him until the sisters of silence had to help him. Being the genius strategist that he is, he still didn't fucking learn to stay back and decided that he would personally kill Mortarion. Of course when he finally found Mortarion the guy just paralysed him and the Emperor had to show up and save him.

Pretty self explanatory. I want a book where the characters are LGBT but that isn’t the only thing going on in the story, preferably something with a little more adventure. Some examples would be the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan and Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith.
What I mean by this is, we're tap tap tapping away, and our quick moves may or may not be hitting due to lag... but there's always a moment when the lag ends and the game syncs back up... which is usually while the opponent is using a charge move. So why doesn't the server send our previously unregistered taps during or after the opponent's charge move as long as they were executed before the charge move was activated? Is this unreasonable? Too exploitable? And it seems like the game doesn't lag a player with a faster connection to match an opponent's slower connection, which seems odd for a 1v1 game like this.
Really want that Laporte but these long shots are fucking terrible. I have spent a good few games taking nothing but long shots with La Liga players and every single one is either saved or misses, this is with Marc Bartra who has 99 long shots, Iago Aspas with 84, Odegaard with 89, Saul with 81. This is one of the least fun experiences I've had in a game, and I haven't even got onto the crosses yet...
Why don't we have an entire series dedicated to the Servants that depicts their legend and what grant them the title of becoming a Heroic Spirit. It will be a win-win situation with Type-Moon getting money out of it and the fans can have a better understanding with the servants and have a more fleshed out the character more with a few episodes centered around each servant. This can also help explain Fate Lore a lot better. Artoria has Garden of Avalon and Dantes already has a CD Drama (albeit not depicting all of his legend). If you can't give us another season of Carnival Phantasm, at least give us this. What do you guys think?
Before you downvote me, hear me out. You are probably learning and/or working during weekdays.You guys should spend your few free days with your family and friends, not playing 15 hours of only half enjoyable games to pack Sommer the next thursday. This just isn't right. I think EA should either decrease the amount of games for the WL, make the WL a weekly league wich lasts the whole week, or improve the Rivals rewards. By doing this EA could improve our social life and make FIFA a fun activity again.
Or they could just improve the gameplay, but we can't ask for too much.
Hi! Can someone please suggest me a book series according to the books i've read?
I just finished reading the Throne of Glass Series, The Red Queen trilogy, The Folk of the Air, Lunar Chronicles, ACOTAR, Rise of the Empress (book 1 only cause the book 2 sucks), Twilight Saga ( -this is an exemption cause love bird everywhere lmfao), The Mortal Instruments, Song of Ice and Fire.
plus POJ series, HOP series, HP series.
I tried Marie Lu's series but i wasn't that hooked so i stopped at book 2. I tried the um Shatter Me series but I wasn't interested.
It would be nice if the suggestion is a series. I'm okay with the main character having a love interest but I don't want that romantic relationship to end up being the main focus of the plot.
Even if the book series isn't fantasy, I could work with that. I've read the Divergent Series and I'm planning to read Hunger Games while waiting for book suggestions.
a few drivers are cool but the majority are impatient assholes. there could be a line out the door and they think you should help them immediately and god forbid you tell them the food will be ready in any time over 15 minutes.

The first thing I know guys think of is how attractive I am, my curves, etc. always using flirty language and pet names. It makes me cringe. And “movie and chill” is not that at all.
