    Thank you all so very much for this absolutely wonderful bounty! You have absolutely no idea how much this means to me (and Inuk for his new toy and jerky treats!) This community is a very special place and you all are like...no, not like...you all ARE family to me (albeit a slightly dysfunctional one on occasion ) Thank you so very much...I'm actually crying tears of joy right now!

    There's a good chance Trump spends more time sitting on his ass than FDR did.

    Thank you so very much for doing this - you have no idea how much I appreciate it! If it was only Elmira's impending move to Charlotte that was the problem, I probably wouldn't be in as much of a funk as I am (the move is definitely for the best for her), but it's actually a series of events and realizations that have contributed to my current down mood. I'll make a more extensive post later just to fill you all in on it.

    I'm going to finally be moving out from living with my parents at the end of March. Took me 30 fucking years, but better late than never.

    Most minimum-ish wage jobs wouldn’t be good for people with education and experience. They would be looking for something better the whole time. I’d much rather have a high school or college aged kid making popcorn than a forty year old in between jobs. They also tend to be more teachable, while the older people think they know best how to do everything.

    Here's some basic tips to get you started: - Depending on your Javelin of choice, abilities are likely more powerful than your guns, although this may change back and forth depending on what abilities you've chosen. So make sure to get used to using them often and knowing when they're off cooldown! Don't just shoot! - Use the dodge button! It's a life-saver. - Flying and hovering in combat is totally viable! Try it out! Even if you only use it to reposition or get away from enemies, it's a big step up from just standing and shooting! Some classes have abilities or weapons that are much easier to use or more effective from higher up just due to being able to get a better lay of the battlefield. - Melee is good! Use it! Not every class has equally good melee, but usually you can take out smaller enemies easily, and some have different mechanics like using it from higher up will cause it to deal more damage, some are even detonators! Detonators explained below. - Primers and detonators! This is a fancy way of saying combos! Abilities that have a circle icon on them are primers. These will apply a debuff, usually elemental (fire/ice/lightning, etc) to enemies. So you'll hit the primer, and now the enemy is frozen in place if it's ice, covered in electricity or fire, etc. They are primed! Now if you have an ability with a little starburst icon, that's a detonator! If you hit them with that before the debuff wears off, that's a combo! Combos do massive damage and each javelin has different effects when they combo. For example, the Storm Javelin's combo means that elemental effect hits all nearby enemies along with the big damage! So they're great at taking out/slowing down swarms of enemies. I believe both Storm and the Ranger melees are detonators, so even if both your set abilities are primers, you can still detonate by smackin' 'em! Based on what I've seen, only the initial primer ability properly primes enemies, though. So if the Storm freezes everyone with a combo, you can't further combo that, at least not that I've seen. - To make the above even simpler, think of combos like soaking an enemy with water before hitting them with an electric attack! You're priming them to take much more damage, that's all. It's really not complicated. That said, not every ability is a primer or a detonator! Some are just really reliable and spammable damage, which can also be super valuable! You can also detonate enemies primed by teammates, which is critically important later on. Pay attention, but really it's hard to miss a primed target. - Anywhere you see water splashes (like the edge of a waterfall) you can completely cool your engines while flying. Passing through the little mist spurt is just as effective as diving underwater or underneath a waterfall proper. Otherwise skimming even shallow water greatly extends your flight time. Don't forget about the puffs of mist, though, that hard reset to 0 heat is great, and provides no heat buildup for a while to boot. - If you find normal difficulty to be good enough, that's fine, but if you're finding it makes missions a little too boring, crank it up to hard! You can easily do the entire campaign on hard on a first playthrough and it provides a much more acceptable (to me) level of difficulty. - Some shit's still janky. Enemies firing attacks sideways or not telegraphing can be really annoying. And sometimes you take fire from what feels like nowhere. Not much of a tip, but just be aware that it's probably gonna happen on occasion, so keep that dodge button ready. - You can rush through the story if you want, but I personally really like all the weird characters around the town. They're a bit stiff and off-putting at the start, but when they start opening up and being weird, I found myself pausing my Youtube videos on my second monitor a lot more just to enjoy their conversations. It helps that you don't play some mute. Your character also has a personality and things to say, with you influencing them. But the interaction and choices are pretty limited. I was just entertained by good characters, is all. I think it'd be a shame to skip out on all those conversations. At the very least, chat with the folks you like! - Your Javelin starts out with a "dirty" skin applied. You'll get an "old" one pretty soon after that, and standard later on, with clean being quite a bit later. When customizing your Javelin early on, try not to let it bother you to much. You'll get it nice and clean soon. - Don't bother saving a bunch of crap early on. If you have an ability you really like and want to try a new one, sure, keep the one you like just in case. But generally just scrap anything that's like 2+ power levels below you. You're gonna be getting a lot and rapidly, so don't hoard. The real loot game doesn't begin until 30. - You unlock all the Javelins as you level up, so just choose whichever seems most interesting for you to start with. Storm is very popular because of its fun abilities and extreme hover time, it makes a good beginner Javelin (beginner as in starter, not as in it's easier or harder) because it introduces you to combos very quickly. - A lot of stuff is account-wide. If you start a second pilot for whatever reason, you'll keep all of your Javelins unlocked, for example. I believe your reputation as well, so you keep some pretty big advantages.

    Just saw this post made about the story: "Fuck Fuller House, Netflix should do a show with their actual real life personalities. A meth head, a religious whack job, a couple terrible comics, and a helicopter parent committing fraud to get her privileged fuck wit of a daughter into college all living together in hilarity. That’s a show I’d watch."

    "Have you heard of this McDonald guy? I hear lots of things from lots of people about him. Some people say he has a farm, it's true, it's true. It's not as big a farm as Trump farm, but that's ok. Anyway, let me tell you... About this McDonald. He has a cow, Democrats... Democrats want to take it away from him, but we won't let that happen, will we folks? Believe me, they're not gonna take his cow which by the way has made a ton of money and created thousands of jobs. Let me tell you about this cow. Tremendous cow, beautiful cow. It goes moo moo here... Moo moo there... Here a moo, there a moo... Everywhere! Moo moo. The fake news media won't tell you this! "

    A significant number of theaters closed because the old people who owned them didn’t want to deal with the digital conversion. Amusingly, the digital conversion saves money because a properly constructed system is 99.9% automated. But the big key to success in really small markets is to be community focused. We are very active in supporting positive community oriented things around the area our theaters are located. I also am very personally involved in things such that my personal phone number is made available. I go do all the career day stuff at the local schools, and we even created a program where we do paid job training for special needs high school students during the summer. Even dopey stuff like pre-movie advertising is strictly limited to local businesses and the ads have to include the business owners in them so they are kind of amusing and lowfi. People love them. And to be quite frank, I’m damn good at pricing things such that despite our much lower prices at the concession stand, we sell more product in terms of dollars per customer than the major cinemas, which is not remotely normal in this business. I wish, my kids just watch the movies when I take them with me

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitchener-waterloo/vaccination-suspensions-waterloo-region-students-1.5034242 Good. If you don't protect other children by vaccinating your kid, then you shouldn't be allowed to put your kids in public places. The only exemption should be for medical reasons (legitimate allergies/reactions).

    I have a couple of nephews in the Labo age-range. They'd be pretty into this. Also, I love that Labo has been a thing for nearly a year and there are still gamer's butthurt over how they aren't good enough for serious gamers.

    Huh. Travis Day himself (key designer of loot 2.0 in Diablo 3) made a thread on the SubReddit. It was fairly popular but didn't gain the traction I'd expect. Has some good info. EDIT: Guess word got out. 44 minutes before I made this post, this thing was at 60 likes. When I made this post it was at 280, and now a few minutes later it's at 385. It finally got traction.
