I'd already reported it before you posted. But as sarcasm is difficult with text, I genuinely wasn't sure you realized. But whatever. Bai.

Wasn't about you Kaiser, but yeah I also reported it before I roasted the bot. Probably reported it before you and was just having some fun.

Basically just trying to bring to light a fixable issue through humor that is clearly making people cranky. You can choose to laugh and read good intent instead of being cranky.

I learned an ex girlfriend of mine passed away last night. I just donated a gift to the college we went to in her name. Our mutual friend who knew her is going to dedicate his book to her. She died alone in Buenos Aires after cutting off contact with people and it hurts that she died alone like this. This is the second time an ex of mine has died in their twenties and it's heartbreaking and shitty.

Have a severely infected cyst near my spine that was cut open and is horrible and need to get surgically removed. Luckily booked a doctor's appointment a month ago (soonest they could see me was a month later from calling). Developed other health problems in the meantime. HMO insurance truly sucks but is all I can afford. #america

The production value of Rocket League Championship Series really gone down the drain. This is the maybe third season and weekend that I seen an error in almost each broadcast. I feel like the health of that community for that e-sport has been failing since season 5. There used to so much community tournaments to watch as a causal fan. I not even sure if the new format is going to work even though it allows the bubble teams to be seen.

didn't someone buy them, and ruin everything?
I remember recruiting this Half elf girl. And IMMEDIATELY taking her out on a contract. Right as we go into this gith hole I tell her "Remember your training, and you'll be fine." and she goes "I have no training." Then she died

I think not, that was before season 5 if I recall. Maybe before Season 1 even.

ETA: When I think about it, it started with one of the Dreamhacks (the summer one, I think) last year, not season 5. Season 5 had it issues but not due to production issues- was to one of the players not doing as well as I wanted them to do well in NA and one other issue. The lack of the Overtime show, I think. So, it's really from season 8 is when the issues started to get bad.
 
ETA 2: But it of started much earlier, maybe about the time that most of the weekly community tournaments orgs stop running them. I'm sure that big bubble team circuit over a few months back in 2018 was Psyonix's way of thanking those orgs like Rival E-sports and Nexus in NA. EU seems to be still strong though. Is this thing happening (the lack of weekly community tournaments) in the other e-sports because I know that Rival stopped running theirs for another game about the same time.

When I first moved to Seattle I immediately noticed how it was becoming more like San Francisco, and the very month I am moving out of this dump something happened that was SO MUCH like the sort of shit that happens in SF that my decision is fully validated:
- New neighbors with three cars moved in; they decided to take my reserved parking space without asking, in addition to taking another neighbor's space with two double-parked cars.
- Because they are double-parked in that other space, they block the driveway for EVERYONE
- Because they're blocking the driveway, these two neighbors RIPPED UP ALL THE FLOWERS AND PLANTS in front so that they can hop the curb when they need to park in my space.

Just the levels of disgusting selfishness here:
- These people are shamelessly stealing shit that doesn't belong to them.
- These neighbors SHAMELESSLY DESTROY PLANTLIFE which is literally the one remaining good thing about Washington and Seattle. The fucking plants. Because the humans here suck ass.

It's bad enough that my neighborhood is so shitty that people were getting shot at a cadence of once every three days within five miles of me a month or two ago. It's bad enough that my neighborhood has gotten so chaotic and neglected that I was violently raped by a meth-head five months ago. My only regret at this point is not going after these harmful idiots more; if I got my stupid neighbor's car towed for breaking the rules he wouldn't have gone whole hog and ripped up all the plants. If I prosecuted the guy who assaulted me he probs wouldn't be doing that shitty shit to other people. But I am too busy to go out of my way to make sure people who are doing the wrong thing get punished; really is it so much to ask that I can focus on living my life without other people being injurious and self-absorbed?

Internet is acting up after 12 days of working absolutely fine and they can't send a technician out until next Monday.

I'm pissed.

Time to look into a new internet provider.

The technician is coming today, within the next forty minutes or so, and my internet just magically started working?!
I'm so confused. Hopefully whatever the issue is it is an easy fix..

He might have checked the node and the tap in the neighbourhood before reaching out to you, and saw the problem and fixed it.
It probably wasn't a problem at your house specifically, but outside in the network.

That is definitely possible, but he never showed up and when I called customer service they told me the technicians are way behind and won't get to me until this afternoon. I mean the internet seems to be working so I'm glad, but its slow so I am sure there are still some issues somewhere.

Fingers crossed the internet stays up but also that they can fix it and make it go faster.  ;D

Dog snuck out the gate as my brother came over.  I was able to get her, but she's deaf and wants to run.  I'm worried one of these days she's gonna get snacked by a car.

Some left their car alarm on all day and night. And it's still going off and on. It's not mine.

The notion that justice can exist in an unequally applied form. The notion that justice can exist at all without truth or fairness.

"In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same. I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against." - Einstein

"God of Truth and Justice can never create distinctions of high and low among His own children." - Ghandi

"Truth and justice are above and beyond everything for the greatness of nations depends on them." - Emile Zola

"There really can be no peace without justice. There can be no justice without truth. And there can be no truth, unless someone rises up to tell you the truth." - Louis Farrakhan

"Truth never damages a cause that is just." - Ghandi again



"Do not worry. I will be fine for telling the truth."

Even if you change providers, the network in your local area likely is still owned by the same company, with the same technicians. And the new ISP would likely call the network's owner if there's technical issues. So... different coat, same issues.

Many of my bookish gamer friends turn into stereotypical 80's movie dickheads whenever sports are mentioned. Hurr dee hurr, sportsball r lame.

Books are awesome. So is playing football. D&D is amazing fun. So is watching MMA. We should all be enthusiastic about other peoples' enthusiasm.

I have fully realized today that the majority of americans that live in the USA do not realize they live in a constitutional republic, and im beginning to think even a smaller majority understands what that is.

Just putting a quick PSA out there for people with braincells since I enjoy this community for having people with braincells:

If you know anyone personally who is into QAnon (which I assume none of you are because you play a text game which requires more than a minimal IQ) tell them to cut that stupid shit out post haste. As someone who has worked to stop child abuse as both a teacher and a software engineer on social platforms I can tell you with some authority that stupid mob "justice" merely swamps resources that prevents ACTUAL child sex traffickers from being caught. I am also pleading y'all as someone who was molested as a kid, and no, I was not molested by the democratic or jewish elites targeted by QAnon lmfao. Save children the right way and please tell any torch and pitchfork wielders you know to stand the fuck down (permanently, no standing by).

They say "ignorance is bliss," but people who weaponize ignorance are monsters and people who allow themselves to be weaponized in this way are stupid swine who I kindly invite to evolve into a more human state.

Well said. I had someone who I thought was a smart person introduce me to that Qanon stuff several months ago and it was quick to see how ridiculous all of that was. The YouTube videos shown were of images pulled from stock photos with an older Swedish lady's voice talking about all of the ridiculous conspiracy theories. Nothing was backed-up with facts (and the conspiracies were so far-fetched you had better use facts). To say that some of the accusations were fairy tales would be an insult to fairy tales. The conspiracies were more inline with the most far fetched idea one could ever have that anyone in humanity could come up with.

I am glad YouTube dispatched with those idiotic conspiracy but the libertarian in me also I finds it dangerous to censor videos or thoughts of any type. I mean, most people can find whatever pornography of any sort on the internet but you can't find something like conspiracy theories for others to disprove. Truth has a way of putting light on evil - We need more light of truth and not less.

Well said as well. It's a hell of an era if you care about liberty/free speech AND simultaneously care about things like... humans getting basic respect. Which is exactly why I had to howl here, I agree the solution is more truth and more speech, not less.

Depressed,  yet seeking happiness.
Alone, yet craving company
Frustrated, yet seeking peace
Lost, yet seeking a path
Handsome, yet never enough
Romantic, yet betrayed
Loyal, yet mistreated
Confused, yet blind and deaf
My soul screaming, yet it slides off me like oil
Intelligent, yet brain dead
A heart of gold, yet flawed
Damaged goods, yet a desire to heal
Scared to grow, yet it's what will grant me a glow
Don't want to let go, yet I must to find my flow
A mystery in the mirror

Friday at work I had to calmly keep giving data who someone who was failing to see my point; he kept giving me his own set of data to refute my data but his was from a completely different time frame than the one under consideration. The guy is purportedly a smart guy, but he was basically stuck in the trap of confirmation bias. It was like he had some pigheaded notion that I couldn't possibly be right to the point that he made himself look like an utter idiot arguing with me. He finally conceded to me "Oh, good point," but couldn't bring himself to say I was right.

I don't need the satisfaction of being told I am right though. I was just annoyed that the data was right in front of our face and he couldn't see it, possibly because I was the one who found the data and not someone on his own team. What I need for us to do, and what the company needs us to do, is respect one another and make rational decisions because our software is used by more than a million people a day. What we need to do as humans sitting at computers is act rational, not like tribalist warring chimpanzees swinging from trees. I don't know why humans are so obsessed with shit like their turf these days; I don't see humans pissing on their turf like dogs, at least for the most part.

Passing judgement on others, writing off other people's arguments, or willfully refusing to understand them because you don't want them to be right is a sure fire way to look like a fool. It's impossible to defeat something you can't understand, so just take one fucking minute to try and understand first. Or not. Just trying to do people a favor.
