They start talking about Kupchak and the Hornets picks at around the 18min mark of the Ringer NBA podcast: https://open.spotify.com/episode/6ulsGGYDUiqZFxZBDXpqgn?si=gAtTTnIYSzaH55FTZA8WNQ
Pretty interesting since Mitch Kupchak was considered totally washed up in 2017 after the Lakers fired him for the Deng/Mozgov contracts.
But he was a good drafter on the Lakers, and it looks like that track record is translating to the Hornets too.
Great hire by Michael Jordan!
I was also a professional derivatives trader. Even at work, all we needed were two monitors. A lot of us old guys (mid 40s) are still very actively trading and for the life of us, we dont understand why folks need that many monitors.
What are we missing out on? I'm not being snarky or sarcastic. Why do you need that much information for a job you do for an hour after open and an hour before close? Most lifers only work the opening gaps and make a very comfortable living. Even if you're scanning setups to scalp throughout the day, how many setups are you scanning that requires that many screens?
Again, not being sarcastic. Just sincerely curious.
How can anyone like Football? Lame ass sport where a game that last 3-4 hours is in reality only playable for like 10 minutes total. Not only that but most players are fucking fat as hell and explains why they can’t catch each other.
It’s crazy to see them fat-asses drained in sweat after only running for literally 5 seconds yet they are referred to as “athletes.” Lol.
I'm 25 y/o male that just had yet another crush reject me. I could probably write an entire book on why I think this keeps happening to me but I'm just way to low right now. My usual pattern is to shove my desire for love/intimacy/emotion under the carpet and go dark mode (i.e. nihilism, extra critical of others, etc.) but I seriously don't think I can go another year of that. and yes that's how long it usually takes me to get over a crush lol idk I just feel extra alien-ish because I try and good trouble getting into relationships and all that comes up are webpages on people already in relationships having issues. Because of this "extra alien-ish" feeling I constantly refer to the human species as something I'm not part of and sometimes I even forget the word human lol Anyway, any other INFJs terrible at starting relationships?
I know, this is just a silly bit of fun to think about, but one of the most exciting parts will be seeing if someone managed to pull out at let's say 150k or even 200k before it drops off again.
THIS IS WHY YOU SINGLE STOCK HOLDERS MATTER! YOU WILL MOST LIKELY BE THE GUYS CRAZY AND BALLSY ENOUGH TO HOLD TILL THE EXACT PEAK AND BEAT ALL US PUSSIES WHO PULLED OUT AT A MEASLY 100K
I'm here for it guys, make me proud!
The other day I ordered some 14k joule surge protectors for my electronics. Upon receipt, the notion of my unsustainable lifestyle hit me like a stack of bricks. First, every single component of the power strip was wrapped in plastic. I took off no less than 10 individually wrapped components, and all of them will outlive me by a factor of 10+. Moreover, they were small, and will eventually wind up in the digestive tract of a bird, for hundreds of (bird) generations.
Second, I realized that the CO2 emitted by shipping this over from China will also outlive me, moreover, the trucking CO2 emissions, and amazon delivery to my door, all increased my carbon footprint substantially. Just so I could prevent a surge in power during a lightning storm.
Finally, when my TV gets too old, all of its components will outlive me by a factor of 100. The thick plastic handles, and legs last 500+ years. Eventually broken down into-microplastics, which also last for hundreds of years. The plasma screen, the handles, the circuit boards, the whole thing is one enormous anthropogenic nightmare.
Edit. Recycling? Plastic/electronic will literally getting shipped back overseas and dumped in landfills/oceans in Asia.
There. I said it. It's not Ethan's job to research every single person he interacts with and make sure they haven't commited sex crimes before he had them on his channel.
Unless it's something that's widely known, and even then there's a chance Ethan doesn't know. You can bring it up and hopefully he sees it, but giving him shit for not calling people out rather than giving the perverts shit for being perverts is just absurd. Pass on that bill to the pervert in question ffs
Ok, ok! I am 100% reading too much into things, but remember when Shirogane told that, if he ever received the Immortality-Elixir of the Bamboo-Cutter tale, he would wait forever until his loved one comes back? (Chapter 56).
Nowadays, all we can think is: “Oh, this is cute and a proof that Shirogane going to Stanford isn’t such a big deal, since he will wait for Kaguya forever”!
Then it suddenly came to me: Don’t we already have a character that is waiting for his loved one to come back for an unreasonable amount of time? A tragic character that is likely the one who has passed this mindset down to his own son?
Exactly! Shirogane’s fucking dad also has an incomplete story! As he stated before, he never even divorced! He is still waiting for his loved one and this will become a very emotional ARC!
(I don’t believe his mom is just a plain asshole, since AKA hardly makes one-sided characters, after all)!
I am probably crazy, but Shirogane’s dad is also a hero of this story and this is my proof!

basically the title but theres a fair bit more nuance to it.
back in early 2010's I (34m) bought my first home which was a duplex, so my neighbour to the left of me is attached, only separated by a wall. we got along great, until he opted to move out but keep his property as a rental sometime in late 2015, we still keep in touch, and often (in the before times) would meet up for the occasional beer and hangout. my new neighbours are alright. a young family, they keep to themselves so i don't really know them aside from the occasional head nod when we run into each other.
my ex-neighbor or/ landlord to the property next to mine decided he wanted to sell, he first offered it to his renters but they declined. so, he then asked me if I wanted to buy out his part of the duplex. after going over the logistics with my wife (32f) we decided we wanted it, since our family is growing and baby #4 is on the way we think it would be good to have the extra room (our two boys [11 and 12] are already sharing a room) and our daughter  is in a room to herself, and my sons are wanting to not share a room (they've been complaining about it even before ex-neighbour wanted to sell) so we signed the paperwork and that property is now our property.
So I called the current neighbours up and said we do not plan to keep it a rental property and plan to meld it into one home. I gave them 6 months to find alternative accommodations. I thought this was fair - they, however, do not. they want to stay. I told them no dice, that's not happening. I do not wish to be a long term landlord and 6 months is plenty of time. when I bought the home I agreed to only do a monthly lease with them as tenants. they called me heartless, and that I'm "taking away their home". talked to my lawyer, and he said everything is in the clear, and I could straight up kick them out next month when the monthly contract needs to be re-signed. but i personally don't want to do this, I already promised 6 monthes and at least that allows them plenty of time to do what they need to do.
I personally don't think I did anything wrong, but I talked to some friends and family and its a mixed bag of responses. some saying that I should continue renting to them, others saying it's my property - do what I want with it. My wife wants to renovate and my sons really want their own rooms.
so, I just want some outside perspective. AITA here?
