I'm talking about friendly teasing, not outright mockery which is probably just not a very nice thing to do in any situation.
This is inspired by my getting to know a couple of people who spent much of their childhoods in the care system. They are doing great now, but have told me about their struggles to learn "basic" things on turning 18. Things like how money works or how to order at a restaurant. One of them talks about encouraging the frequent "typical blonde" jokes she would get because it was easier than the truth (i.e. "you learned that stuff from your parents but nobody put in that effort with me").
It made me feel very sheltered and I realised that there is a whole bunch of crap I take for granted. Everybody in life has access to different knowledge sources, different caregivers, different opportunities. A friendly tease might actually make someone feel pretty crappy about their situation. Let's just be nice to each other!

If you’re subscribed to the Bungie newsletter, yesterday they sent out an email. One section is about Final Assault beginning. The exact text from the paragraph is:
“Guardians have been battling the Vex Invasion throughout the Season. Now, a hidden location has been uncovered and the Final Assault begins. As more Guardians rally to the moon, the time has come to end the invasion once and for all.”

I got to sit down one on one for a 15 minute interview with Handsome Jack’s voice actor Dameon Clarke at the Allentown comic-con. You can find it here: https://youtu.be/8k_c9jQFS2M
We discussed a range of topics including his return in Moxxie’s heist of the handsome jackpot (and he teases a “bombshell” in it, and confirms the return of Timothy/The Doppelganger), voice acting, Clarke’s opinion on Jack’s morality, his opinion on the controversy between former Claptrap voice actor David Eddings/Randy Pitchford, and “jumping the shark” with Jack. He was a really cool and genuinely funny dude, he’s really a lot like Jack IRL! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Lots to unpack here. Seems to reference the Souls series quite heavily. Definitely implies an official announcement soon (game awards?). It's written in a poetic form, the last two lines seem to be an unfinished couplet. Sega Genesis?????? Is that a red herring?????? Any theories? Get the cork boards ready.
Originally mentioned last week but now confirmed.
Place your bets, folks... what do you think is in the Mystery Boosters?
Setup: My Mom's brother's wife had 3 kids, all due to contraceptive failures. All 3 of her kids are now married with kids. Me: Female, professional, never wanted kids for a number of reasons, including but not limited to having to raise my younger brother when I was a kid (a fact which my Mom still denies to this day) and watching my own parent's marriage fall apart. I even had my tubes done.
Now, my (gay) brother is married and now has a kid. Mom always stood up for my brother's "recognition" in the family and called out my Aunt when she sent a bullshit small gift for the wedding after my Mom knitted, etc for all 3 of my Aunt's kids (my cousins) and all fucking 6 of her grandkids. Mom also made Thanksgiving every year for almost 40 years, until she was too old to keep up, and now nobody is really picking up the slack even though they live in the area.
So this year, one of my cousins is finally getting off her ass and hosting her side of the family. So tonight, I was talking... keep reading on reddit ➡
