Red/Blue: You run around bullying kids so you can go beat up adults and oust the champion from his full time job with your fire dragon
Gold/Silver: You have a really evil rival and team rocket fires probably gamma rays at every Pokémon ever giving them bad radiation poisoning but they look cool so it’s ok
Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald: You find out that these evil teams with no ability to color coordinate orbs have woken up literal terraforming monsters because.... reasons?
FR/LG: It’s like gen 1 but with gen 3’s trumpets
Diamond/Pearl/Platinum: Once again an evil team with evil agendas and an evil leader has awoken the gods of time and space but if you are playing the other game he awakens a demonic reality destroying deathly dimension beast
HG/SS: It’s like gen 2 with more legendaries
Black/White: Some vegans with a castle are protesting so you kidnap their king and beat up his dad for having a different opinion

My friend met a girl before spring break and of course, hasn't seen her since then. But they've consistently kept talking and finally decided to meet up if they both could they both stay quarantined for three weeks— you know, safety. They went on a date yesterday and things went great, so she kissed him on the cheek. And as he described, his brain completely short-circuited. He forgot how to talk/breathe for a few seconds. I thought it was funny/cute and wanted to hear y'all's experiences.
EDIT: I never expected this to take off the way it did, this was an awesome surprise. Thank you c:

I hate online dating, I really do. I prefer to speak in person, I'm better at reading and recuperating energy that way.
Yet somehow, I ended giving Bumble a try. After a few weeks I got sick of it and deleted the app. I was grumbling to my roommate how stupid it was guys would match with me yet not... keep reading on reddit ➡
My best friend, Mia, has cystic fibrosis. The average life expectancy for cystic fibrosis is about 37, but Mias doctors don’t think she’ll get to 30. When we were kids and her CF wasn’t something I was hyper aware of, we agreed that we’d be godparents to each others kids.
I recently gave birth to a baby girl, and obviously due to COVID we’ve had no visitors to meet her, but I FaceTimed Mia from the hospital. She started the call with “let me see my goddaughter then” and that’s when I remembered the agreement that we made. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Mia, she’s my best friend, but it seems a bit silly to allow her to be god mother when 1) she probably won’t be around by the time something could happen to go wrong for me and 2) her quality of life would in no way enable her to look after a child.
I waited until we were home before I said anything to Mia and when I asked her if she was okay with it she said she was, but I got a text from her mom later that night asking how I can claim... keep reading on reddit ➡

Home didn’t feel as empty as it once had. Even without Jamie or Mr Meow I felt more hope than I had in months. I greeted Wrinkles and Tetley, fed them and sat down to smoke at my fold out table.
Natural sun poured in through the windows but my home would never look quite the same after my time in the undertower.
I turned on the shower and must have stood underneath the water, watching Albert’s blood run down the sink, for at least half an hour. Overwhelmed doesn’t cover it. Shut down would be more accurate.
I dithered while getting ready, exhausted and starting to feel the lack of sleep once again. My eyes were heavy. Sitting down on the bed was fatal.
I woke up a few hours later, worried that I’d left Derek waiting.
I rushed out of the flat and down the stairs to the garden. They were extra kind and only made me take... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know this is the 21st century but I’d love to get some female runners opinion on this.
Overweight beginner runner here in her mid 20s. Slowly progressing and getting better at it. I run in the city streets because I live right in the middle of a city and have no car to drive anywhere else nice to run. I also run as soon as the sun starts to rise - so around 6am or so.
Ever since I’ve started running I’ve been running in shorts mostly because sweatpants suck and leggings make me sweat even more. Lately, and as we progress into the summer, t-shirts have become cumbersome and I would much rather just not have to work out wearing them. And while I don’t mind at all running around in a tight sports bra and running shorts that leave little to the imagination, I fear that this might be inappropriate and don’t want to “shock” anyone.
What are some your thoughts and experiences on this?
Also, this morning I got my first wolf-whistle ever since I started running from three menacing looking... keep reading on reddit ➡

Any chance of surgery will fail because trying surgery and having it fail makes your vocal cords weaker. I’ve tried surgery 3 times. Meaning the chance of success is about less than 10%
Edit: A lot of people think I’m fake and you have every right to be. But I have a lot of evidence that I’m not. Evidence 1: I have a YouTube channel (KeePae Gaming) that I don’t post on anymore. In that YT channel I have never said a word. Evidence 2: I have no post or comment on my account that says I have said anything. Evidence 3: why would I know sign language and scenarios about being mute that can and have happened if I’m not mute?
Edit 2: ima go play some GTA 5 so I can’t answer your questions now. I will later tho
Edit 3: rip my inbox. I can’t respond to all of you so I’m going to make a second AMA that is just for questions that haven’t been answered so if I don’t respond to your comment in the second ama then it means it has been answered. I’m on mobile so look at my profile for it
Basically, I don’t believe sanctions would work in the near or medium term. They might work long term (over 20/30 years) but by then Hong Kong will have been fully assimilated.
My reasoning is based mainly on how China perceive Hong Kong. To China, it is 100% theirs. It’s on the Chinese mainland and it was returned to them after lease from Britain.
Because of that, there is no way to back down without losing an immense amount of face. You cannot be a superpower and allow the world to dictate how a territory of your country is governed.
Therefore, there would have to be a war that is either victorious or has a negotiated outcome that ensures certain freedoms in HK. That war could easily become a major war (and even a world war) as again HK is on the Chinese mainland and a war over HK would be an existential threat to Chinese sovereignty.
But that is what it would take.
If you look at a Bearskin hats of the Grenadier Guards, you notice that the chinstraps are actually way too short to fit under the chin to keep it in place.
Why is this?
I've noticed it a lot in militaries from across the world. I wonder why it has that purpose.
Ok Guys, I`ll keep this short, since its all happening so fast right now.
Wirecard committed accounting fraud. They were not able to provide an autority approved balance sheet by the deadline tomorrow. This will allow all their creditors to ask back for theyr loans. Outstanding loans are 2 Billion, which Wirecard does not have. This will likely cause them to default.
The biggest creditors are Commerzbank and Deutsche. These Idiots took stocks instead of bonds as security. The Wirecard stock went down 60% today. Commerzbank -8% and Deutsche -3% as of now.
This event is big enough to send shockwaves through the worldwide financial sector. Just like Bear Stearns did back in 2008. Short Commerzbank. Short Deutsche. Short HSBC tomorrow. Short every fucking Bank on the Planet next week. Shit is about to hit the fan.

50's and 60's only had between 8-13 races per year. 80's and 90's only had 16 per year. I know there will be a tonne of these posts over the next few months, so let's knock it on the head early. Who wins, wins.
I have short parents: 5'5" and 4'8", so I expected to be short as an adult - maybe my dad's height or so. Then at age 15, I went to the doctor and was told I was done growing out of the blue. I was 4'10" and 1/2". Apparently I had a growth hormone deficiency that was never treated. Fast forward 3 years, I'm now 18 years old, male, white, and the same height (I round up to 4'11"), so it's safe to say I am done growing.
Right when I found out I was finished growing, my younger brothers (who were very small for their age as well) got put on HGH at the advice of the doctor to prevent them from ending up as short as me. It worked. At first I was happy for them. Now they are 16 and 5'9", and 15 and 5'7" and it's become an actual problem. They escalate every argument into physical fights because they know they can take me. They make fun of me relentlessly. They bully me just about everyday at home.

So, just last night on Smackdown, we got what I feel has now become the absolute epitome of why Shorty G is something that infuriates me that it is saddled with a guy like Chad Gable.
To summarise for anyone who doesn't know or remember: Chad is approached by Kayla pre-match (who is 5 feet even, just FYI) and asked how the height and weight advantage Mojo Rawley has over him will affect their match. Mojo comes up behind Chad as he's answering, starts patting just above his head (because he's tall, don't you know), and Chad eventually jokes that he has eyes in the back of his head and lays Mojo out. Match starts with Cole calling Mojo the powerhouse (which you will draw issue with if you follow Chad and Otis' workouts on IG, just saying) and Chad, not being funny, completely out-wrestles him. Mojo gets in a few lucky breaks, but Chad counters a Hyperdrive attempt into a small package for the 3, to the chorus of Michael Cole yelling "WHAT AN UPSET".
The Shorty G gimmick, I'm sure I... keep reading on reddit ➡
