It was on 4 chan.
Joseph R. Biden and Kamala D. Harris will take the Oath of Office today, becoming the 46th President and Vice President of the United States of America.
Today's inauguration is unprecedented, for a number of reasons. Among them, Kamala Harris will become the first woman to serve as Vice President. Meanwhile, the ceremony itself will look markedly different, with limited audience due to COVID-19 restrictions, and a drastically increased security presence in response to concerns as a result of the insurrection at the Capitol on 1/6/2021.
Incoming President Biden’s Inauguration speech is expected to be 20-30 minutes long with a focus on unity and a need to bring the county together. Widespread reports are that the Biden Administration has already laid out ambitious plans to overhaul immigration policy, address Climate Change, combat COVID-19 and provide economic relief to those affected by the pandemic during their first 100 days in office.
Official Inauguration proceedings are expected to begin at 11:00 AM ET, and will proceed throughout the day. A rough schedule of events can be found below. Please note that all times are approximate and ET.

The Miami Heat are set to retire the “Vice” uniform Collection they’ve had the last four years. According to Heat Marketing Exec, Jennifer Alvarez, the Vice uniforms were a success:
> “The year that we released our first Vice uniform, we proved that the design on the front of a jersey can actually be just as powerful, if not more powerful, than the name on the back.”
Some other facts I found surprising about the collection:
Total revenue of the Vice era has doubled that of the Big Three era with more than $25 million in sales, according to the team.
In December 2020 alone, the Heat’s final ViceVersa installment accounted for one-third of the NBA’s total jersey sales revenue during the holiday season, generating $2.1 million, according to the team.
In May 2020, ESPN ranked the Vice collection (before the debut of the ViceVersa edition) at No. 8 on the list of the top 74 jerseys in the history of the NBA.
More than 650,000 Vice-themed items sold accounting for 67% of the franchise’s retail revenue, according to the Heat.
The team acknowledges that they’ve debated making the Vice theme permanent, but as of now, they’re retiring it for something new, which the team says that current players are looking forward to wearing.
Will miss the Vice jerseys. Of all the City uniforms, the Heat (& Jazz) did it the best!

As most people know, pro players tend to pick champions not only based on their actual strength in the meta, but also on how much they've played that champion over the years. However, it seems that a lot of times they give too much priority to how comfortable they are with that champion compared to how strong they actually are. Inversely, a lot of strong champs seem to be left aside simply because pro players haven't had much experience with them.
In my opinion, Gragas top isn't as strong as it was at the start of this season. He really does feel like someone who just gets picked because of how used players are at playing him. His laning phase is safe, but not as safe as other champs who don't have to run Phase Rush for it to be safe like Gnar, Sion or Aatrox, all three of which can also play more aggressively.
Inversely, I think Seraphine isn't being abused as much as she could because players don't feel comfortable running a botlane that isn't adc+tank.
What about you? Do you think there are some overrated/underrated picks in pro-play?
I'm (23F) tired of having women occupy my mind so frequently. Every time there is a lull in my day, my brain is daydreaming about interactions I've had (or would like to have) with women.
I've been single for 6mo since my three year relationship ended. This is the longest I've been single since I was 17. As a graduate student focused on getting things done most of the time, I understand that I'm probably experiencing burnout and loneliness. I'm human, after all.
However, I receive a substantial amount of attention from both men and women, which reinforces my obsessive daydreaming. While their comments are flattering, it's distracting because it will not lead anywhere. Many of these women are hours away from me or are otherwise inaccessible (e.g., emotionally unavailable, straight, etc).
I abstain from social media as the FOMO and comparison culture is insidious. However, I feel drawn to it when I am interested in someone. I go from not having an online presence for weeks to obsessively checking if that person has interacted with my posts. If they don't interact, it makes me feel like garbage. Then I keep checking the apps anyway.
Instead, I want to focus on applying for PhD programs in the fall. That's very much within my control, but I feel like I'm blowing my chance. Fantasizing without intervention is becoming obtrusive to the things that actually are real in my life and that I actually care about.
I posted in a different subreddit regarding this problem, but I don't think I framed the issue properly. The comments were trying to convince me to give myself a break (which is very kind response), but that's part of the problem. By giving myself a break for so long, I've created a problem.
I'm tired of investing resources into relationships that are bad fit for me just because I'm lonely. I'm also tired of using all of my cognitive resources on daydreaming about things that won't happen, making myself feel bad by creeping on social media profiles, and procrastinating on the things that actually matter to chase after women.
I want to focus on what is actually within my control. That will give me relief.
TL;DR: I (23F) want to be laser focused on achieving my goals (e.g., my graduate work, research, PhD apps). My wandering eye is derailing me. There has to be a way for me to get a grip instead of being distracted by indulging these thoughts all the time. What would the stoic approach to this problem be?
Please be kind - this is my first time... keep reading on reddit ➡
