Hi there, my budget is 6K-8K. I like to buy an automatic car which has the lowest maintenance costs. I like to use this car to go on road trips once months and use the regularly to go to work, shopping etc.
Additionally info: I’m based in Auckland and I plan to move to Melbourne next year end.
What is the best thing to do in this situation? Also, what’s the best place to buy car for my price range? (Trade me, dealers, fb groups?) and what are the things I should look for when buying so I don’t get scammed? I’m new to this so appreciate all the responses. Cheers!

2023.03.30 20:35 SomeSortOfBird Get a credit card. Invest my cash. Buy/build a house. 5 years.
Goal: I'd like to be paying a mortgage I can afford by the end of 2028.
- I live in Austin Tx, ( I want to stay, but I'm open to Jonestown or Lago Vista as they are the most affordable and realistic for commute.) I'm most drawn to the idea of building a small 1,100 sq ft new home on some cheap land outside of the dam flood zone.
- I need a credit card to establish a history of revolving credit. My history is good (car paid off), but no open lines seems to piss loan officers off... I'd like to be pointed in the direction of a card that I can make all of my purchases on. Literally everything. One that is incredibly simple to setup automatic payments from my bank account to avoid paying interest. And one that will have the most "free money" from their rewards system for things like my retirement account. I really don't buy shit (I'm a gamer), or travel very much.
- I just dumped 6k in my roth for 2022, 10k in I-Bonds, and will keep 20k in my money market account as emergency funds to take advantage of the good interest rates for the moment. That still leaves me with 50k to invest. These funds were going to be my down payment, but I think using the next 5 years to grow the funds, establish credit, and wait out the shitty mortgage rates is my best option. Should I buy some undeveloped land, or jump into a 4.6% 5 year CD? Or is there something better?
I've been putting in the leg work to get my income on an upwards trajectory, my retirement accounts on the right track, and my savings invested somewhere I can take advantage of the current economic climate. I'm 31, and I make 62k a year, with decent potential to be making closer to 90 within the next 10 years in my industry.

2023.03.30 20:32 Bulky_Insect648 The situation
Hi guy's, I guess this is what is going on with me.
- Psychotic break that got me diagnosed with Schizotypal, PTSD, and bipolar.-13 day stay at the good ol mental hospital.
- I wrote a story trying to explain how my psychotic break started. It is unfinished bc it brings me back. So at this point in time I have left it alone.
- At this point I believe I am being given messages by god in an attempt to save my soul from the devil. I understand this could be delusional ideas of reference and I understand I have a long way to go before I can identify what is real and what is not.
- You are not suffering alone, there is a light at the end of our tunnel for sure. I think if one person here can find a way then we all can. Happiness is attainable and I will relentlessly pursue it.
- I know how wild the below story is. But as you know it was real af to me.
I realized I was beaten when my mom gave me my 2nd dose of drugged food.
*Note*-Last chapter-The man behind the curtain is revealed. It is me. (alternate story and endings for each Cartel, Illuminati(west coast and east coast)-One side is evil, the other good(wutang)., CIA, Then the best one imo-The church
vs the devil.
What a way to start the new year lol. It was on Jan 1st that all of this spiraled out of control. It all started when I was working at amazon in clay NY. I woke up one day and saw a shit ton of cops. I was growing at the time, an illegal amount of cannabis that would have landed me a felony. So knowing this I shit my pants and ran down the stairs to see what was happening. Am I getting raided or is it just some regular molly whopping bullshit going on outside? We installed a large number of security cameras due to the molly whopper problem. Anything that wasn't tied down would come up missing, not after the cameras lol. I get my coffee as two cops knock on my door. I answer and
they let me know that a crime was committed by some kids and that they would like the videos if my camera caught it. I thought to myself, some kids.....no big deal at all. SURE I said as I ran upstairs to get my laptop while trying to keep my tents out of view. I return and both I and the two cops sit in the kitchen until I can get the videos emailed to them. They leave and I think that is the end of that. WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(insert the fact that you bought weapons, signs and didn't sleep hardly at all)
I go to amazon about a week later and find out that the people that committed the crime in front of my house work with me. Aren't I the lucky one? Malachi(one of the assailants) was kind enough to come to the conveyor belt and leaned over and let me know that it was him and his friends. And that both he and his friends that committed the crime will be coming back to get my grow(how the hell do they know about my grow I think?). I mean mugged him and we both continued about our day. Due to me having headphones in it took me a while to put together exactly what he said. But when I did put it together, I immediately started taking all the necessary precautions to prevent a home invasion,. Such as securing all entrances and placing weapons all around the house. Identifying all routes in and out and covering them with cameras and traps if needed. Not my first rodeo(ptsd like a mfa from the first). This time was different though due to me at the time living with my sick parents. I planned on defense only and coached them on what to do in the worse case.
(RAW DATA ELABORATE on the amazon story-For example all of the people you identified and all of the tatoos that they shared. A large orginazation was identified but at the time I did not know they were after me. Later I found out they
were using the night staff at amazon warehouses to distribute their products around the globe. In 30 mins or less lol.)
With my home secured my mind was at ease. On my next scheduled day at amazon, I learned that my manager Caroline was working with/for Malachi. I learned this by her repeatedly placing me next to Malachi and Mike(Malachi's friend). This continued for about two weeks and I saw exactly who was playing for the Malachi's team. It turned out to be a large number of people. I identified they were a group by the matching tattoos they displayed. They had people working as janitors, and in every station and position in amazon. I am talking all the way from janitors to the managers. At least a good 10+ at amazon working to make my life hell there. One time while next to Malachi and Mike at the beginning of this. I lost my temper, pretty badly. I have a mental health issue with my anger(just learned), which caused me to say a bunch of stuff in retaliation to Malachi. This caused Malachi
to make a phone call while shaking his head in sadness. That phone call was to someone important. Because ever since Malachi made that call my life changed for the worse. Like way worse.
After both myself and Malachi were done talking shit to each other. He(malachi) let me know how much power he could get on short notice. I woke up to smoke my normal morning joint and saw Angel(from amazon), Mike, and Malachi walking around my house(in the street). Later that day I would say about ten to 15 cars made an appearance to let me know they meant business. I just sat there and smoked my joints and cataloged all of his personnel. I knew at that point I was in over my head and made a mistake in feeding into Malachi's anger. I called everyone I knew, which was two whole people(lol) and told them to stand down and not do anything to Malachi if they saw him. I also tried my best to de-escalate to the best of my ability while working at amazon. That however just seemed to make them madder. One night Caroline came up to me and asked me to go work next to people who were trying to kill me, which at that point was normal. Once I realized this I had a realization that this was wrong and should be addressed. I was experiencing retaliation for reporting a crime and it was being perpetuated by my employer(I was thinking in my head Lawsuit lol). Then Angel started going ham on me. I let my management know that they needed to do something(they did nothing). Then I let Angel know the only reason they were mad was the video I gave to the cops, and that I was not a threat to him. I also reiterated to him that he had to touch me for me to be able to defend myself. I left that
day and made a report to the amazon ethics board on what had happened there. I quit and called the cop I gave the video to for advice and to let him know I was prepared if it goes further. I let him know I would fight to the death for the safety of my mother and father. Which was now in danger due to Malachi and the organization he is with. He agreed with me and told me to protect my family.
I was out of work for a couple of weeks and everything seemed to simmer down. All the cars and people that were patrolling daily seemed to stop. During my off time I was able to do a bunch of research on Malachi, Angel and Mike and I learned that they were tied to a local car dealership in fulton. I researched the car dealership and found out that they were from the Bronx and were affiliated with the Cartel. I found this out through facebook and instagram. Malachi was kind enough to throw up gang signs in his instagram posts that I was able to check on google. I battened down the hatched as much as I could. But I knew that my family was now in grave danger due to me losing my temper. They are good people and I had no intention of letting them pay the cost for my action. So I came up with an Idea. I would enter into the legal weed business by going to a multistate operator for a job. Through different research I learned that heavy cartel money has flowed into these multistate cannabis businesses. I was hopeful that I could find an ear from the cartel by applying for a job at my local out of state cannabis company called Acerage holdings. It didn't take me that much time and I landed a job for a company called acerage holdings which grows medical weed. On my first week there a co-worker named Isaiah was talking about my ethics report that I made to amazon to another employee. Lucky me, I believe I found the ear I was looking for. It turned out that he was part of Malachi's group. I worked with a small number of people at acerage holdings and I am positive that most people working there were very aware of who I was and who Malachi was. And that I was not well-liked at all, meaning malachi's influence reached there as well.I stayed to myself to the highest extent possible and just soaked up the comments like a sponge with no responses from me at all. My intent was to gather as much intel as I possibly could and identify an opportunity for a line of communication with the leadership of the Cartel. This would be hard to do. The business that I was working for was designed as part of their legal operations(It didn’t take much google to figure that out).
I would go into work everyday at Acerage and people would be openly talking about my situation. One guy was joking around while we were harvesting some weed that I should put in the wood chipper. I saw he had a bunch of tattoos so I figured what are the chances he has a similar tatoo. I moved over to work with him and to my surprise he has the same tattoo as Angel. I engage in conversation and maintain my cover to gather data and identify a line of communication so I could plead my case. A worker named Tony came into our area that day and he was loose enough to say don’t trust the security because they are the cartel. I think to myself, welp that guy ain't a cartel but security seems to be my point of access to the top. Later that day I was oddly issued my badge which seemed rather thick. Me being my paranoid self began to read all of the literature that i was given when I first got the job. In fine print I read that the company has the right but not the duty to monitor your phone or other device to make sure intellectual property is not stolen. That day I immediately started talking about how the FBI got a guy at my last job for the same thing. And that I planned on using their practices for a business that I wanted to start. Needless to say I believe they would be listening on my phone for more crumbs to try to start a case.
I woke the next day and began to plead my case while in my truck alone. I apologized and claimed responsibility for my actions. And that I would accept any punishment as long as it was me and only me. I clocked into work that morning and oddly enough my coworkers that I had befriended seemed very sad. Almost like something was going to happen to me. I armed myself with trim scissors and was ready for the worst knowing that my message had most likely reached its mark. I was scared and happy at the same time. I was afraid because I thought I was about to die but I was happy because I thought I had brokered the safety of my family successfully. Stressfully I finished my day and luckily nothing happened. So I went home.
To relieve stress I started to work on some different hobbies. One of those hobbies was music. I got to the point where I had two songs written (rough copies), and I was sampling tracks and beats to put my lyrics to. While doing this, I realized that I got hacked. There were two recurring options that kept popping up on my youtube. Two live streams with people rapping, one was the west coast rap channel and one was the east coast rap channel. I had my headset with a mic and I was putting
my lyrics to their beats when they answered me and started conversing with me. They told me they wanted my music and that I had to make a choice. I told them I was not ready to make a choice and I kept switching between the two while listening to their music and then them listening to my music(it was dope af-they were freestyling a lot-me not so much but what I did do was dope af). Then I garnered attention from both sides with a proposal. I explained how darkness and corruption have taken over and now evil sits atop the societal pyramid controlling everything and everyone. I explained how words have power, especially through music to change negative energy to positive. A good example of this is
waking up in a horrible mood and then putting on a good song and magically your mood changes from negative to positive. I proposed to use that to address issues that plague communities across the U.S. My proposal was to use 300 artists,150 from one side and 150 from the other. My song would be used as the prime example(leaders lead by example). 1 person comes up with lyrics and each of the 300 make those lyrics their own(own beats/cadence) and release a song on the same day. So with one song 300 versions will be thrown out in the local dialect to address the issue simultaneously all across the U.S. Long story short it would have a great chance of changing the current negative state of the world into a positive one. By delivering a hot beef injection of positivity into this negative landscape we have found ourselves in. Everyone agreed with me and I ended the night by DJing a few songs and then calling it a night. Before I go people from both sides start making me offers to join their side and that they would pay me and this and that. I thought this was a dream but here these dudes were offering me whatever I wanted to hop on their side. I told them no offense but That I had to think about it. I understood I was a great talent and that I did not want to make a bad deal. I thought I would sleep it over and then let everyone know my choice after work the following day. So I called it a night.
The next day I went to work and it was a holiday so we would only be working until 11am that day.My
boss Shmalex(name changed to protect identity lol). Told me to come talk to him after we were done with work that day. I immediately put it together that not only did I gain the attention of the Cartel but I was under close watch from the FBI due to me recently buying weapons and talking about my hustling openly. I told him ok and continued with my coworker Rob to complete our task that day which consisted of picking leaves off plants. While On break I was talking with Rob after my cigarette and he was showing me his fishing gear and trying to plan a fishing trip later on. I agreed that it would be fun and then we went back into work. About an hour after we got back into work Rob dipped out to make a call. He came back in and then about ten mins later Cody came in and told us we were done for the day and that we could leave. While I was cleaning up, the robber walked up behind me and whispered I’m sorry. I didn’t even say anything because I thought he was joking. Spoiler alert he was not joking.
I left work that day and I was super pumped knowing that I would soon be able to solve all my money problems by choosing which side to sign with. On the ride home I kept thinking how I got in the situation that I did and why I started making music. And then it hit me, Malachi, the same person who had put me in this dangerous situation was the reason why I was about to be successful and safe most of all. I thought that both sides had my back and were upset with the Cartel coming into the U.S. and just claiming territory like that. So I was no longer concerned for either My or my family's safety anymore, which was like ten tons being lifted off of my shoulders. On the ride home I started rapping and loudly yelling that I loved this shit and would take care of everyone with money. Especially Malachi and his family as a token of friendship and a hope for forgiveness.
I get home and I see that my parents have bought pizza. I think dope af and grab some and head upstairs. So I finally made my choice to join West coast records to be in the nice weather. I let both sides know that I planned to go to the west coast and told each that I would only go if I could collaborate with both sides. Notbe limited. I told them to show up at 8 am the next morning with two million in a bag. I was communicating with them verbally through the computer and with notes written on notebooks that I was showing my mirror. They told me they had me on watch from that location, and confirmed it by giving me details that only a camera in the mirror would capture. I went to bed that night with the idea that I was going to change the world. I was able to talk to both sides and luckily they were with me in changing things for the better. I went to bed oddly knowing that I just made a work-together truce between the crips and bloods. Good night's rest would be an understatement. I slept like a fucking baby. However, I woke up mad af boy lol.
8 am comes and goes and no one shows up lol. At this point I am unsure if I got hacked by Malachi, actually am about to start the 300, or am being trolled by the govt.... so many possibilities at this point lmao. So I don't go to the computer until the afternoon. Then things kinda get pretty crazy, but not as crazy as it will get..... I hop on the computer and hop on the west coast live stream. They start rapping about how they are going to torture me and kill my family and friends(someone on there said they were in jail and mad af at me). I see an Eminem video pop up on the screen and click on it. It is Eminem and he is rapping live about me and he kept giving me the shhhhh with the finger thing when I went to talk. He was saying that he was going to lock me up and not let me out and a whole bunch of shit. I closed my computer and just went and laid down and thought about the situation that I found myself in. I knew they had cameras on me in my house and in my truck(they told me how much gas I had!). I just laid there and thought about the situation, 1. Am I crazy...no 2. Am I hacked....yes 3. How do I save my family? idk yet 4. Am I beat beyond belief? yes. The criminal organization that Malachi was with(some cartel) was using amazon prime to deliver their product across the U.S., they knew I knew this and I know they wanted me dead so that is the opponent I was planning against it. Now looking back it could have been the FBI(I am loose so could have been watched), Cartel-the most likely, West or east coast rappers... so fucked lol. So I planned to wait it out to protect my family and engage if needed. This meant I always had to have weapons on to carry that plan out(pain in the ass(prison pocket)).
I hopped up from my bed and went downstairs to eat a fish dinner that my mom had picked up. They were hurting for money and I was helping them out financially for months before that. Suddenly it clicked. The night before they bought 4 pizzas. Then tonight they bought fish dinners,.....WAIT. Where did they get the money to order out twice in a week, so so out of the ordinary? I recognized this and went upstairs with the fish dinner trying to think why they would order out two days in a row. I hop on my computer and start to eat dinner. I start listening to a 90s hip-hop live track and the dude who said he was in jail starts talking. Lets me know it cost 100k to get my mom on his side and that the food I was eating was drugged, and when I go downstairs my mom will make a fake police report on me to get me to jail. I stop eating the fish and go downstairs and just try talking to my mom to disprove what I just heard.
She looked at me and immediately started to make a scene. She told me to "calm down and go to sleep or she'll have to call someone". I deescalate, throw out the dinner and then head upstairs. My brain starts working overtime in attempting to solve the situation. My playlists keep changing on my laptop so I start clicking on the top choice every time it changes. I finally realized that another party was communicating with me that was different from the previous ones(Anonymous). They altered songs in the top choices to deliver a subliminal message. I can’t describe how the words would jump out at me but I was able to gather the message after playing about 5 songs. They wanted me to go to a mental facility for safety for both me and my family. I didn’t know why, but I had no options at that point so I had to trust them.
It was my job to decode that message in the limited amount of time that I had. I spent about an hour listening and grabbing applicable information from the slightly changed songs. I felt myself at a loss trying to find the subliminal path laid out. A gospel live stream popped up on my laptop and there was a different group that wanted me to sing with them(The church). The song was hallelujah. About halfway through the song I had a religious epiphany. I blacked out for a couple of seconds, and came to singing the song hallelujah while holding my arms out toward my mirror in a hugging motion. The people in the gospel livestream were rejoicing loudly and I heard someone say it's him. I immediately knew they thought I was the second coming and I dropped to my knees to denounce that.
I took my notebook and started writing in my notebook a message. It said me for my family. I looked at the shotgun on my floor for a brief moment. But that was not an option due to my upbringing and marine background. The path became clear when I mentally snapped. They had accepted my deal, me for my family. I briefly looked at my shotgun and then headed downstairs to tell
My parents that Ineeded to go to a mental hospital to meet anonymous. I went outside to wait and my mom went and made a phone call that took about ten minutes. I don't know who she was talking to but when she came out I knew we were good because the cops didn't show up. And then off we went, I played the part quite well on the ride I remember. I told my parents I loved them and then after listening to faded with a stranger one last time, I went in to accept my fate. I asked for one last cigarette and my dad gave me a half a one that tasted quite odd.
A lady came in once I was laying in the hospital bed to "take blood" and give me something to sleep. I thought this was the end but it was not. I woke up the next day and could have sworn my mom said the doctor wanted to see me. I told her I was still tired and rolled over and went back to bed. Then when I woke up they brought me into a room with a security guard posted up right near me. My mom told me they were going to move me to come after I eat. Then they moved me to omh. I checked in and now this is where things get crazy. However, the memories are still very blurry
I was given a mask, and I swear it felt like I had my memory wiped about 5 minutes after putting it on. I enjoyed it quite a lot. I was under the impression that I would die (I was very surprised I woke up). I went into the mental hospital and I went through the check-in process for entering into inpatient(explain in detail the process of checking in). It was pretty demeaning to say the least. I thought I would make contact with the resistance or whoever gave me the subliminal messages to go to the mental hospital. But that did not happen. I thought to myself, Why would the security guard drug me if I am in a safe place? I immediately knew I was in grave danger and that I had to be on guard at all times. I was shown my room and I introduced myself to my roommate bob. (I would later come to find out that bob was a former marine). My head was really really messed up from the medication that they had given me. I chilled in my room for a while and finally went out to walk up and down the hallways to attempt to identify any possible way out. I needed that information later to break out if needed. I identified a weak link in the armor. It consisted of one door that would get me access to one side and a fence that once jumped would lead me to the running part. I started walking up and down the halls and I noticed a woman that was also doing the same thing. I couldn't help but overhear what she was saying. And to my surprise, she referenced the situation that I had found myself in. She sat down and I sat down next to her. She leaned in and told me that they were going to kill me and skin
me alive. And she just started maniacally laughing. I knew I was in a facility run by the organization after me. I sat there and then it came to me. Don't feed into it gather as much intel as possible and plot your next chess move carefully. So I fucking laughed with her and we began to laugh together. I made small talk and then I went into the cafeteria to grab some water(which I usually drank a ton of). I grabbed a glass and I shit you not it was like it had corn syrup in it. It was water but THICK. I had no choice so I drank the liquid. It was my only source of water and at this point in my information gathering, I dared not bring up any intel that I was finding out about.
I saw a couple of people in the cafeteria and decided to make small talk. I met a female named Angel and another female named Haley. They seemed nice enough but I couldn't get it out of my head that something just seemed very very off about this place and the people that I was meeting. They told me about the groups they offer as therapy and told me I should make an appearance. I tried my best to remember but I could not for the life of me and ended up missing it and just roaming the halls. Nighttime was fast approaching so I ducked into a place that they had labeled the quiet room and I was lucky enough to meet a man named Scooba Steve. He introduced himself and made it a point to tell
me that he was a man of god. I noted this and we continued to make some small talk which consisted of religion. I asked him to say some prayers for me that night and I left him there to read his bible. I later found out he was very devoted to and any bit of free time he had was devoted to reading the bible. They called for nighttime meds so I went to the counter to get mine. They gave me a sleeping pill and an antipsychotic and then to my surprise they gave me a nicotine lozenge. I was extremely happy about this due to fiending for some good ol' nicotine. I planned on staying up all night which I did. I needed to see exactly how many staff they had and if they were involved in this or if they were legit(spoiler alert, they were not).
In the hallways there were nooks where you could sit down and admire the artwork. I posted up in one of those nooks near my room and just kept an eye on everyone that night. Nothing happened, but i did notice that the security guard makes one pass a night. If I needed to get out I could easily use him as a plan b so I noted that in my playbook and in my spare time fashioned me a toothbrush shank.

2023.03.30 20:31 GalaxadtheReaper Where to Buy Out of Print Games and Fear of Missing Out?
So I have a list of games I want to play I can only find on eBay that were limited print or are now out of print. Is there a resource for where to find these games for sale online with the best price? I see the games for sale on eBay at semi-decent prices sometimes, but I'm a college student without a job or a lot of money. I'm afraid that if I don't buy the games now, then as they become rarer they'll just get more expensive. Is this fear justified? I don't care about steel books or special editions, I just want the own the game with the case it came in. I'm not quite sure what to do.

\" ADIÓS A SANDINO\" by Armando Morales, 1989
When my father was 14, he still lived in El Salvador. At the time the economy was a mess, inflation was through the roof and jobs were nowhere to be found. Employers didn’t have money to pay wages or salaries. My grandfather and father did what they had to do provide for the family. My father at this age already dropped out of school. Schooling in El Salvador is useless. School was public up until the 8th grade and passed that there was no point going to high school if one wasn’t planning to head to university, in our capital of San Salvador. My father quit school earlier, at the age of 10 to work with my grandfather, to provide. My father first worked with my grandfather when he was 4, old enough to be of some use. Everyday at dawn, my father ventured with my grandfather into the beautiful mountains, where they did odd jobs for instant cash or spent the day collecting wild fruits and vegetables to sell at the village market or take home for dinner. They did what they had to do to survive. I’ve seen the country firsthand, there are no jobs.
In fact, one of the complaints of Salvadoran immigrants by other Salvadoran immigrants is that they all have issues adjusting to the American economy when they get here. They’re so used to being on edge and scraping for every penny, that many forget that in the United States, you can actually get a job. Many people, in fact, do come here for work, but these 10 dollars/hr jobs are unheard of back in the motherland. They are like a dream come true to immigrants, so much so that the main issue is simply getting migrant workers to stick to one job, something they’re not used to. My father fell into this trap: when he arrived at the states he was 20. He worked in an aquarium, a mechanic shop, construction, you name it. It took my dad 6 years (when I was born) to finally settle down with his wife and newborn son and realize that having just ONE job was the correct order of things in the American job marketplace. He does landscaping now, and has so for the past 20 years, and is now specialized to drive trucks and heavy machinery. Not bad for someone for spent his childhood picking mangoes off of mountain cliffs.
Something else that burns deeply in my father’s memory was the war. My father barely understands it himself. He’s too scared to even talk about it at times. When he was 14 he was sent to the far side of the mountains by the grandpa to collect some tools they left the previous day. My dad couldn’t find the tools at first, and so he accidentally stumbled upon a cave. Inside the cave there was a lightbulb, and so my dad walked down into the cave, and next thing he knew he was being held at gun point. My father stumbled upon a secret rebel radio station. The guerrillas made him swear that he had no allegiance to the government and was not sent as a spy, but after a minute or two all they saw was a scared boy. So they took pity and let him go. They then packed their equipment and moved elsewhere down the mountain.
When my father returned to the village later that day, he was met at gunpoint again, but this time by the National Military Police, holding an assault rifle and demanding that he tells them why he was in the mountains for so long and if he had any affiliation with the guerrillas. My dad pleaded that he saw nothing, too scared that saying the truth would mean death for him. The soldier let him go, not knowing that earlier that morning, my father did, in fact, find the men they were looking for.
There are other stories too that my dad tells me: like the time his friend went into the mountains and accidentally triggered a land mine left by the military. He had a closed casket funeral that next Sunday. News would break out about how the Salvadoran government ordered the massacre of an entire village on the other side of the country, suspected of working with the rebels (they weren’t), and yet my fathers village was one of the most strategic holdings for the rebels for the entirety of the war. My father knew that at any moment, the government could decide to kill everyone he knew around him.
Empires are a fickle thing. They’re hard to look for and hard to imagine that one lives in one. No Jew or Gentile gave a second thought that they lived under the Roman Empire, just so long as they pay taxes to Caesar and their city wasn’t destroyed. But empires in the modern era are deceptive, almost evil.
I know personally how empires work. I live in the United States of America, where I can go to school, get a good job, probably afford health insurance, and buy whatever the f*ck I want at the Walmart, because it’s my money and I worked for it.
I am Salvadoran. My home country has more or less been involved in American politics since Teddy Roosevelt. Before him it was the British, and before them our colonizers of the Spanish. The Spanish were brutal: forcing everyone in these countries into peasantry, debt, and in some cases straight up slavery, all for the benefit of Spaniards from the mainland. They had all the money, bought every piece of land that once belonged to great empires of the Aztec, Inca, and Maya, and then forced everyone to work these lands, but to own none of it. What the Spanish did to us still explains conditions in Latin America to this day. The British never did this to Americans, who came to this continent looking specifically for land, and establishing settlements that would become the thirteen colonies. Meanwhile the Spanish put everyone to work and for nothing in return. Generation after generation: father dies but leaves nothing in his will to his sons, because he never had anything. It was all taken from his family in 1492.
All my family has to their name is a single concrete family house in El Salvador. It’s my great grandfather’s house. He built it himself as a young man and then raised my grandfather in it, so then raised my father in it, and then it ends there, because my father moved to the States. It’s actually the only asset my family has to their name in El Salvador. My family is one of the lucky ones to even have a house to our names. Most people rent land and build shacks to sleep in because shelter and roof overheard wasn’t included in the rent for the month.
When the Spanish were overthrown by Napoleon Bonaparte, this sent shockwaves to Latin America, who had no loyalty to their new French emperor. One by one, the Spanish colonies of Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica declare their independence, without a single exchange of gunfire, for the Spanish at this point were squashed by Napoleon. An independent El Salvador saw the same society that it had under the Spanish: rich noble land owning elites paying low wages to the millions of hungry workers below them. I’d argue that it has always been somewhat like this. Our economy was based monoculture (meaning “one crop”). At times it was añil, which is like cotton and used for textiles, other times it was coffee, a growing commodity in the Modern Age. The landowners needed to sell their products somewhere, and with Spain gone, they looked to the empire that defeated the Spanish Armada: the British Empire. The British Empire militarily occupied parts of Nicaragua and Honduras, even making their own permanent colony of Belize. What did this mean for the people? It meant that the landowners kept the old ways for it was still profitable.
There is a common argument here in the United States that a certain point slavery stopped being profitable, which is why the Northern states industrialized and outlawed slavery, for they preferred wage workers to slaves, less costs overall. Well in El Salvador, this peasantry, this slavery, never stopped being profitable. From empire to the other, from the Spanish to the British, this backwards system of exploiting people by stealing land and then putting them into debt and forcing them to work for you still paid off as long as the British were willing to pay the pretty penny for that coffee. Sometimes empires are self inflicted, but let us remember that the peasants and poor people never had a say in any of these politics. No one voted to sell goods to the British, that was a discussion for only the elites who decided in a plan that would hurt poor people even more. It’s no surprise that these elites still had ties to Spain and not to El Salvador. There we see their true loyalty: to money, and at the costs of everyone’s livelihood. Sometimes these third world countries put themselves into the empires but if you dig deeper, you can see who really made that decision. And then it all makes sense. Shortly after the First World War, the United States became more involved in international politics, and especially those in Latin America. American business moved into Central America where they bought land for the rich elites and essentially used the same system the elites had for many centuries: paying the people low wages and not providing them any social mobility or education or benefits. Sometimes the US government itself intervened, by lending money to the individual nations who then used it to perpetuate the status quo. We lovingly call these nations "banana republics." In El Salvador our exports was coffee: a "coffee republic."
In my country, the working men were getting tired of this backwards economic system. So in the 1930s, they revolted. Half of the country revolt and protested the government, who was at the time led by a military dictatorship who only got into office by force. The response from the government? The government killed 40,000 people to put down an insurrection. This was 1932. We called it “La Matanza,” Spanish for “the slaughter.” The government claimed that the force was necessary to put down what seemed to be a communist revolution, but in fact of those 40,000 dead people, I can bet you that many if not all, never heard about a “Karl Marx” ever in their life. What they wanted was food for their family and for the government and elites to STOP GETTING IN THE WAY OF IT.
The next 50 years were of suppression. People were silenced immediately and everyone continued working m. By this time the country had somewhat industrialized so they old peasants became poor manufacturing workers, if they were lucky. In places like my dads village, although they now had their freedom, they had no jobs around them.
Slowly a second revolt was brewing. The government shut down protests to the war with Honduras, violently, which signaled every leftist guerrilla in the countryside to decide that now was the time to finally overthrow the government.
I can’t tell you if El Salvador would have been better if the communists won. What I can tell you is that things were bad already, and then the government made it worse. The United States at this time was involved in the Cold War, and suspecting that these new guerrillas may have ties to the Soviets, D.C. flooded millions of dollars to the Salvadoran dictatorship to suppress and put down the communist insurrection. The United States military personally trained some of the battalions in the Salvadoran army, with new counter guerrilla warfare strategies and tactics that the Americans learned from Vietnam. These battalions would then go on to become death squads. We had many names for the death squads, and they were feared. Guerrilla or not, they weren’t afraid to shoot anyone in the back of the head in the name of law and order. In reality, the death squads created anarchy, and made the people more sympathetic to the communists. Here was a simple fact: the communist guerrillas, although they lived amongst the people and were printed in the news as being terrorists, never executed a civilian. The Salvadoran government on the other hand though, every week there would stories of death squads breaking into peoples home and murdering them in front of their children. These children then took shelter in the orphanages that the communists ran. The communists had shelter for refugees and orphans, people who had to escape war or lost everything in it. They provided schooling and taught many for the first time how to read and write. The guerrillas were on volunteer basis, if you didn’t want to join the ranks, you didn’t have to, but you were always welcomed to stay as long as you wanted. Many of these people eventually found their way into Honduras to escape the war, and some even made the daring and perilous journey to the USA. It wasn’t hard for the Salvadoran people to pick a side: one side wanted the best for you and the other side had no issue murdering you and your entire family for political gain.
When I read about the war, I see a culmination of centuries of oppression onto a people. And when those people had enough, they were murdered. Around 80,000 people were killed. 5,000 people went missing and still are. Half of the country was displaced and had to move homes. And finally, 500,000 Salvadorans decided that they had enough, and left the country.
I see an empire in the work, and just like how the Romans had to put down peasant revolts regularly, the Salvadoran government, under direction and aid of the American Empire, did what empires always do in history; they oppress and kill. We’ve all see Star Wars. And before the Americans, it was the British, and before them, the Spanish, and before them the Aztecs, and before then we don’t know but I must assume that this sh*t never ends. Not until the people revolt, and revolt successful.
I mean, that’s how the Americans did it. They were being oppressed by the British Empire so they revolted and forcefully removed themselves from the equation. And look at how America is now. It’s only ironic at the Americans would then go around and used it’s wealth and influence to dominate other smaller countries, kind of like how the British treated them before 1776.
This is imperialism: a system in which a more developed nation either directly or indirectly controls an underdeveloped nation who cannot defend itself or have any sway in the argument, and to the benefit of a small elite in the nation. This is usually through military force, but sometimes it’s economic and is more akin to a trade empire. Indian princes swore allegiance to the Crown to establish the British Raj, all without a vote or election, no voice at all for the people, who then had to take matters into their own hands. African warlords supported the slave trade and sacrificed their morals for a quick buck. Look at how imperialism turns brother against brother, a nation onto itself. And the only people who suffer are the starving masses of the underdeveloped nation, who have two choices: fight or flee.
My country chose fight.

2023.03.30 20:28 StepwiseUndrape574 Grand Theft Auto is no stranger to add-on content,
Grand Theft Auto is no stranger to add-on content, but the latest in a long line of leaks suggests Rockstar might be taking a bit of a different approach for the long-awaited sequel — splitting up parts of the game to repackage as DLC.
The rumor comes from established Rockstar leaker Tez2, who says Grand Theft Auto 6 is currently targeting a release in holiday 2024 “which has been pushed back multiple times.” Tez2 adds the game may be pushed back again, into to 2025.
Furthermore, Tez2 claims Rockstar is considering breaking up the game’s content into post-launch DLC, to ensure the game can meet a release date. If GTA 6 launches in 2024, it will be a whopping 11 years since the last release in the franchise.
This wouldn’t be an unprecedented move from Rockstar, considering the approach the studio has taken with GTA Online, incrementally releasing massive updates and new story content. Notably, however, GTA 5 didn’t feature any additional story content, just updates to the Online portion of the game.
GTA Online GTA Online has managed to stay relevant for a decade with consistent updates, and it makes sense Rockstar would pivot to that same approach to single-player content.ROCKSTAR Taking this approach would let Rockstar more easily hit whatever internal timeline is established for GTA 6, and provide a road map of content to make post-launch more appealing to players. Interestingly, this isn’t the first time this kind of rumor has been brought up by Tez2, as last August the leaker reported GTA 6 would “expand over time,” adding on new cities after launch.
The easiest approach would be to create content that ties into both the single-player and multiplayer aspects of GTA 6, and creating new cities in-game could do just that. New locations could be fully playable in the online portion, while also adding on hand-crafted stories and missions. This would allow Rockstar to continue the overwhelming success of GTA Online, while story content could help attract new players or those that might not care to engage with multiplayer.
This tactic of splitting up elements of the game as DLC is something Nintendo has been using for years, to great success. Mario Strikers: Battle League, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Nintendo Switch Sports, have all seen scheduled add-ons for new content, even years after their initial release. At this point, it’s not clear how much of a live-service element there will be for GTA 6, but this Nintendo-like approach would allow Rockstar to retain players who are primarily interested in single-player experiences.
GTA 5 Although GTA 5 never received single-player DLC, Rockstar’s director of design said in a 2017 interview the studio would “love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future.”ROCKSTAR Nintendo stands apart from other developers, though, in that typically these updates are free or bundled with a Switch Online subscription. It’s a smart move, as games like Mario Strikers, which would typically have a very short shelf life, suddenly provide players with more of a reason to stick with it for the long haul. It also allows Nintendo to continue to sell its older, first-party titles with minimal discounts.
There’s no video game property in existence bigger than Grand Theft Auto, and a report in 2020 estimated GTA Online made a staggering $600 million in 2019. Even in 2023, it continues to hold an enviable place in the sales charts month after month. The popularity of GTA Online has only continued to increase over the years, and that mainstream success is exactly what’s poised to make GTA 6 such a massive success.
Breaking up content into DLC lets Rockstar bring GTA 6 back into the conversation every six months, year, or whatever release timeline suits the studio and the community best. Seeing a big GTA 6 update in a State of Play or other presentation will likely bring thousands of players flocking back to the game, and considering GTA 5 and GTA Online are still alive and kicking a decade later, it’s easy to say Rockstar is hoping for lightning to strike twice with GTA 6.

2023.03.30 20:28 Newspaper1202 guys need some major help!
So I was solving
121. Best Time to Buy and Sell Stock
You are given an array prices where prices[I] is the price of a given stock on the ithday.You want to maximize your profit by choosing a single day to buy one stock and choosing a different day in the future to sell that stock.Return the maximum profit you can achieve from this transaction. If you cannot achieve any profit, return 0.
Example 1: Input: prices = [7,1,5,3,6,4] Output: 5
Explanation: Buy on day 2 (price = 1) and sell on day 5 (price = 6), profit = 6-1 = 5. Note that buying on day 2 and selling on day 1 is not allowed because you must buy before you sell.
So I came up with a brute force solution but I couldn't write in code , then I saw solution it was a new approach than mine, what should I do?

2023.03.30 20:27 lactomangulator Can someone with experience help me with my financial situation?
This post is going to be somewhat long because I’m looking for advice and help regarding my financial situation. I’ll be as transparent as I can be and I would really appreciate any help or advice in what to do in my situation because right now it just feels hopeless.
Where to begin…so the financial situation that I’m in right now is one that feels like I don’t have any way out of, and while some of it is absolutely my fault, a lot of it is circumstances just not working in my favor and life sometimes just giving you a swift kick while you’re down. I’ll start with some back story. So I came out of 2020 in a not-so-terrible financial situation. I took out a large high interest loan (due to inexperience in that world) and was right near paying it off when 2020 hit. I buckled down, adjusted my finances and while I struggled I was able to pay that loan off entirely and get my finances mostly in check despite my job being shut down for over a year and a half and surviving on what I had saved. While it was frustrating watching years worth of savings dwindle away, I was both happy and proud of myself that I was able to survive and make it work. I had to move out of my place, sell most of my belongings and move in with a friend for a time but I made it work.
At the beginning of 2022, around March, I started a new job in a different field that pays well and much better for my mental health and overall work/life balance. I make decent money, I don’t pay outrageous rent and I’m not spend happy or frivolously wasting my money on unnecessary things. I found out that I had a sizable amount of debt still from credit cards that my then partner was using in my name without my knowledge. When we split up around the end of 2021 she moved back to her home country and basically left me with almost $30k in debt that I had no knowledge of until she was gone. I did the only thing I knew to do, and in July of last year, I took out another personal loan. This one was a bit more urgent given my financial situation so it may not have been the best out there, but it took care of the bulk of my credit and I was able to get to a sustainable place where I could at least see the light at the end of the tunnel. The new job required that I purchase a new car, and my company has a work program that helped me purchase it, but it was another loan taken out in my name. I didn’t buy anything crazy expensive or fancy, I wanted nice and reliable but also affordable so I bought a Honda Civic. I love this car, it’s mine, I’m proud of it and it allows me to do my job which is sales based so I’m on the road for the most part every day traveling around my city to different accounts.
Then in the middle of 2022 my grandmother, who is basically like my mother, went from staying with my aunt to needing to move into a hospice. My family does not have much money and I am on the other side of the country from them so I made arrangements with the hospice facility to shoulder most of the bills related to the home and my grandmother’s needs without my family knowing. As far as they know, a lot of the money that pays for my grandmother is donation based from her church and I would prefer that it stay that way. My family is very religious, conservative and prideful so if they found out that I was the one paying for this sadly it would do much more harm than it would do good to our relationship. We’ve already had several fights about the needs of my grandma and who would pay for them, how much they would pay and that type of uncomfortable conversation surrounding a dying loved one. Well, sadly my grandmother passed away peacefully 2 weeks ago. She donated her body to a local university and we didn’t have a funeral, cremation or anything of the sort. I flew home and thankfully through a friend of mine was able to reserve a local American Legion Hall for free and we had a lovely ceremony remembering a beautiful soul that I’ll miss forever.
Now this lands us to today. I am currently around $50k in debt, with $25k of it being in a personal loan I took out and the rest being split up between a few different credit cards. This does not include my auto loan, but that payment is very manageable and I see no issue with allowing that to stay where it is. What I’m trying to accomplish right now, is finding a loan that would be $50k that I could consolidate everything I have into one payment that in a perfect world I could keep around $1000 per month. I don’t even know if this is possible, but as my credit to debt ratio has gone up my credit score went from a 750 to now somewhere around a 670. I have reached out to several different loan companies trying to get a loan in this amount, but given that I just took out a personal loan last year AND an auto loan, I’m not approved for anywhere near that amount. This is the dilemma.
The issue I’m having right now is that the loan payment is $900 per month, plus all the other credit cards I’m paying entirely too much and slowly digging a deeper hole, which forces me to put some necessary expenditures on a credit card, raising my debt to credit ratio, which then lowers my credit score and it just feels like the hole is slowly getting deeper and deeper. I’m not living beyond my means, I’m not being silly or irresponsible with my money. Life handed me a shit hand and I did the best I could with the tools I had at the time to survive this and now I just don’t see a way out. I’m at my wits end trying to find a way to make this work and it’s frustrating because I know I can afford to pay this monthly amount and if I can consolidate everything into one loan I could pay those credit cards off which would bring my credit score back up and I’ll be back in a place where with 4-5 years of paying off that loan I’ll be back at square one and out of debt entirely and able to begin saving again and getting back to where I was financially before the pandemic.
I would really appreciate if anyone has any experience with a situation like this and can point me in a direction of what could be helpful. I get letters all the time about a “debt forgiveness program up to $50k” but I’m fairly certain all that’s going to do is default on all of my debt and basically destroy my credit score to oblivion and be on my record forever having done that so I’m really trying to avoid that or declaring bankruptcy. I simply don’t know what to do and I need help.

In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Rye Lane.

Now free, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern-day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher, and Cyclone.
Production companies : Warner Bros. Pictures.
At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Rye Lane would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As
Rye Lane neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).
“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Rye Lane, which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Rye Lane.)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Rye Lane, we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So
that's what I meant by the resetting. Maybe resetting' wasn't a good term.only
In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Rye Lane” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.
“They kept that all the way under wraps, and I didn't know until maybe a day or two before the premiere,” he recently said Rye Lane (2023) FULLMOVIE ONLINE
Is Rye Lane Available On Hulu?Viewers are saying that they want to view the new TV show Rye Lane on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
Is Rye Lane Streaming on Disney Plus?
Unfortunately, Rye Lane is not currently available to stream on Disney Plus and it's not expected that the film will release on Disney Plus until late December at the absolute earliest.
While Disney eventually releases its various studios' films on Disney Plus for subscribers to watch via its streaming platform, most major releases don't arrive on Disney Plus until at least 45-60 days after the film's theatrical release.
The sequel opened to $150 million internationally, which Disney reports is 4% ahead of the first film when comparing like for likes at current exchange rates. Overall, the global cume comes to $330 million. Can it become the year's third film to make it past $1 billion worldwide despite China and Russia, which made up around $124 million of the first film's $682 million international box office, being out of play? It may be tough, but it's not impossible. Legging out past $500 million is plausible on the domestic front (that would be a multiplier of at least 2.7), and another $500 million abroad would be a drop of around $58 million from the original after excluding the two MIA markets. It'd be another story if audiences didn't love the film,but the positive reception suggests that Rye Lane will outperform the legs on this year's earlier MCU titles (Multiverse of Madness and Love and Thunder had multipliers of 2.2 and 2.3 respectively).
As for the rest of the box office, there's little to get excited about, with nothing else grossing above $10 million as Hollywood shied away from releasing anything significant not just this weekend but also over the previous two weekends. When Rye Lane opened in 2018, there was no counterprogramming that opened the same weekend, but Peter Rabbit and Fifty Shades Freed were in their second weekends and took second and third with $17.5 million and $17.3 million respectively. That weekend had an overall cume of $287 million compared to $208 million this weekend Take away the $22 million gap between the two Rye Lane films and there's still a $57 million gap between the two weekends. The difference may not feel that large when a mega blockbuster is propping up the grosses,but the contrast is harsher when the mid-level films are the entire box office as we saw in recent months.
Rye Lane, which is the biggest grosser of the rough post-summer, pre-Rye Lane season, came in second with just $8.6 million. Despite the blockbuster competition that arrived in its fourth weekend, the numbers didn't totally collapse, dropping 53 % for a cume of $151 million. Worldwide it is at $352 million, which isn't a great cume as the grosses start to wind down considering its $200 million budget. Still, it's the biggest of any film since Rye Lane, though Rye Lane will overtake it any day now.
Rye Lane came in third place in its fourth weekend, down 29% with $6.1 million, emerging as one of the season's most durable grossers and one of the year's few bright spots when it comes to films for adults. The domestic cume is $56.5 million Fourth place went to Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, which had a negligible drop of 5% for a $3.2 million sixth weekend and $40.8 million cume., in fact )
, which isn't surprising considering it's the only family film on the market, and it's Rye Lane to grossing four times its $11.4 million opening. Still, the $72.6 million worldwide cume is soft given the $50 million budget , though a number of international markets have yet to open.
Finishing up the top five is Rye Lane, which had its biggest weekend drop yet, falling 42% for a $2.3 million seventh weekend. Of course, that's no reason to frown for the horror film, which has a domestic cume of $103 million and global cume of $ 210 million from a budget of just $20 million. ((INSHALLAH))

2023.03.30 20:25 efisk666 Choosing a 120V hot tub for indoor use, help me pick a model and offer words of wisdom?
We're looking for a 120V tub that's going into a finished garage space that will also have an elliptical, so it's like a "wellness room". We're going to separately get a rubber mat for spills / grip and an dehumidifier that starts automatically and empties automatically. The tubs we're looking at all have the basics like steps, ozone, and cover lifter. Use will mostly be for my wife (5'9"), then me (6'4"), then kids and visitors depending on good behavior.
Here's what we've narrowed it down to, from $3500 to $8500:
- The Lifesmart LS500 Plus 290 gallon 87x77x34 is $4000 currently from home depot, although it goes on sale for around $3500 pretty regularly. It has foot jets and lower back massage jets and a nice lounge seat which are all good. I'm a bit scared off by the fact that the pump is only 1 HP and the jets / tub could be too basic. We want something nice that'll last instead of just a cheap party tub for the yard that'll break in a couple years. It also is stuck at 120V and heats by pump friction, which means it can't convert to 240V for outdoor use some day (we live up north).
- The Freeflow Azure Premier 235 gallon 80x63x33 is $6310 once you add in ozone, filters, cover lifter. It has a 1.5 HP pump and stainless steel jets and nicer finish than the Lifesmart, but it still looks pretty basic to us, especially the lounger option. It's made by Watkins, who makes everything from Lifesmart to top of the line Hotspring tubs, so I don't know how to assess quality.
- The Nordic Stella MS 240 gallon 84x61x34 at $7000 with ozone, a cover lifter, a year of bromine, and stairs. We like the look and layout of the Nordic a lot and think it's prettier and the jets look nice, especially the lounger for my wife. We're a bit scared because the retailer gets bad reviews and Nordic is a smaller manufacturer, but the tubs themselves are loved.
- The Marquis Celebrity Monaco 250 gallon 80" diameter at $8500 with ozone / cover lifter / stairs. We like the look of it the best and Marquis is a great brand with a good layout, but I don't want to spend $8500 unless I know I'm really getting my money's worth. We're in Seattle and Marquis is made in Oregon so that's appealing, but again I don't know how to compare quality.
Are any of the quotes too high? Any words of warning on certain models or manufacturers or tub designs? Figured I'd post here before pulling the trigger in case people have words of wisdom. Since none of the tubs are top of the line, no stores carry them locally, so we're going to have to buy based on recommendations and reviews. Thanks!

2023.03.30 20:23 AngieGreg To the Diablo 4 Nerds, Dweebs, & Otaku Console & PC Sycophants.
To say that I’m a Diablo Fan is an understatement, but unlike some who discovered Diablo in the 2nd installment, I discovered the Diablo Series at Diablo 3 when it came out May 15th, 2012, and followed it all the way through its full and complete series. I played D3 for about 3-4 years as a part of my daily Gaming schedule for pure enjoyment, but there was finally a point in which I could not run the same circle or cycle over, over, over, over, and over again, which led to me finally & sadly ending my time on D3. All I could think about was “Why hasn’t Blizzard put out a Diablo 4?”. Yet, the years continued to pass…11 years in fact.
Then with the Greatest Joy and Excitement, Diablo 4 was announced November 19th, 2019, but…prematurely so, with no release Date attached, and we all were left with our proverbial Pants around our ankles waiting for the Big Date. As it was later deduced that Blizzard wanted to create a buzz to get people to buy into Diable Immortal, a Pay To Win Mobile platform game, that was initially rebuked, but somehow there still were those that have shelled out unimaginable amounts of Real Money to progress in that arena. Once again proving that Mentally Damaged Individuals are willing to Enslave themselves, and are more than willing to be Fleeced just to Win at something in Life, even if its as pathetic as a Video Game. (Side Note: This is also evident as the companies that provide Cheat Programs for PC, and Cheating Hardware products for Consoles have produced Record Earnings in 2022 due to the sheer number of pathetic individuals willing to cheat at something as simple as Video Game just to Win at something in Life.)
So here we are…11 Years from the start of D3, and 2 years after the initial announcement of D4, and finally we had a chance to play the Beta of D4. I believed it was fully understood by the Masses that the Beta was a Test of the Infrastructure of the Game itself, as Blizzard stated initially. Additionally, I believed it was fully understood by the Masses that the Beta was a mere 20% of the Full Game, and would be more of a Stress Test than an Actualization of the Real or Full & Final Structure of the Game itself.
However, Enter the Nerds, Dweebs, & 30 yr Old Virgin Console & PC Sycophants with the Waves of Negativity, Criticism, and their supposed Expert Negative Opinions through their extensive Criticism of D4 in totality. The negativity posted on YouTube was overwhelming. Once again the Nerds, Dweebs, & 30 yr Old Virgin Console & PC Sycophants lived up to their useless opinions.
I listened to their Negative commentary and game play of the Barbarian. Being a Barbarian Master, I already knew that the Barbarian at Level 25 was just getting started in his Growth Structure, and would become God-Like by the time he reached Levels 40 to 50, less known by the time he made it to levels 80 to 90. But, here they were spouting off about how useless the Barbarian was, because they were themselves Ignorant of the actual Mechanics of Diablo as a whole, and they were already looking for the EASIEST Character to use in D4, because they were either incapable of playing the Barbarian properly, or they were more interested in being the Sorcerer, Rogue, Necromancer, or possibly the Druid. How many times did I see the useless Negative Sycophants playing the Barbarian and IMMEDIATELY turn to the Spinning Barbarian tactic, which is the MOST MIND NUMBING limited structure to play the Barbarian on any level of the game. Yet, the sheer numbers of YouTubers & Twitch Streamers who followed that dynamic was staggering to say the least. This is when I knew these idiots knew NOTHING of Diablo, and their opinions should be seen as nothing more than Fecal Matter Smeared Toilet Paper and quickly flushed accordingly.
Then came the immediate Flocking of Pigeons to the Sorcerer…and Suddenly Everyone Loved being the Sorcerer. Imagine that…Make it EASY on them and the Pigeons loved it immediately. The same was seen with Rogue, as the praise for how FUN & Easy it was to play Rogue. With everyone anticipating the release of the Necromancer in the following weekend.
Just as predicted, the Pigeons loved the Necromancer, because they seemingly didn’t have to worry about Dying, and they were overwhelming the Games settings easily. It was laughable to say the least watching each Streamer extol how AMAZING they were, and how Great they were at D4. Then the inevitable happened…they began stating: ”D4 may be too EASY for me, and it’s too repetitive in its current state.” Pathetic.
Any Diablo Expert or Master knows that the Beta was presented as a Present to those that chose to Pre-Order D4. The Beta was set up on EASY, just to confirm that everything was working as it should, the applied skill tree, the attributes of the Weapons & Armor, the secondary attributes, and movements of the Characters. The Beta severed its purpose very well. The Servers had trouble digesting the sheer numbers of players that jumped on all at the same time initially, but Blizzard handled that issue as best they could under the circumstances.
It’s going to be SO FUNNY watching all these Sorcerers, Rogues, and Necromancer Fans DIE OVER & OVER in their attempts to Level Up wondering…”Why am I dying so much, and why can’t I beat the Bosses as easily as in the Beta?” How fast will that head back to Fortnite, or some Pay to Win Game that they can use their Mothers Credit Card to appear to be Good at something. LMAO. My disdain for them is already palpable.
I am not a Developer for D4, and I am not sponsored, nor do I have any vested interest in D4 other than my personal hopes for a Game that exceeds my Adventurous Hopes to delve as deep as possible into the War between Good & Evil that is the Fabric and Foundation to Diablo 4 in its entirety. I waited until the tides of Sycophants moved on to make this comment, because unlike them, I am not out to become “Popular” for my opinion.
For the Diablo Purist. D4 will have its Positives and Negatives as does any Video Game, but there are some things that are easily solved, like the Storage Amounts, and some things that are not, like Co-Play on PC. We will see D4 evolve over the years just as D3 (The most Sold & Played game EVER) that lasted 11 years somehow with people still playing it Daily.
If I were to put my two cents worth of an opinion out there it would be to ask that they (Blizzard Devs) continue to EXPAND the Open World Map Over Time, and don’t leave the Map as is for the duration or remainder of the existence of D4 as they did in D3. I believe the OPEN-WORLD Concept was an Excellent and Winning Idea that will pay off greatly, but I sincerely hope you don’t become static and fail to push deeper into what will surely pay-off magnificently if you guys should choose to EXPAND the D4 Open World Structure over time so the dedicated players don’t burn out running the same circles & cycles over, over, over, over, and over again until they are forced out of D4 due to the sheer pointlessness of playing D4 anymore. Please put New Monsters, Abilities, Weapons, and Bosses in New Locations in the years to come.
Otherwise, I’ll see you on June 6th with my Barbarian, and My Wife will be a Magnificent Mage grinding to Level 100 over time. I’ll probably try the Rogue or Druid too. I don’t like the Necromancer, because I don’t like letting the Mob play the Game for me. By the way Necromancer lovers, don’t think you’re just going to run about D4 untouchable either. I’ll leave my predictions at that, because I don’t want people thinking I’m a secret Dev, or that I have some unknown secret information, which is totally not the case at all.
Take care, and I’ll see you guys out there June 6th to Destroy all that is Evil.

2023.03.30 20:23 MrSocPsych I'm out, and I feel like I wasted my time.
I apologize for the incoming rant, I just think a lot of us are feeling similar right about now.
I'm wrapping up my PhD this spring that I started in the Fall of 2019. I initially entered the program with the thought of becoming a professor, like so many of us do. My program is at a research-intensive R2 which is what I wanted. I had previously worked positions at a couple R1s and realized that culture wasn't the greatest fit for me. As a part of my contract, I got loads of teaching experience to pay for my tuition and a tiny stipend to boot. I enjoyed teaching and got excellent reviews from my students.
Despite this, I've decided to leave because of the clear inadequacies that position would have for me. As I searched the academic job posts roll in this year, the positions at schools I would consider were either geared toward poaching someone from an R1 or so overloaded and underpaid (e.g., 5/4 + research and service for <$60k/year) that it would be impossible to provide for my family..=
I think the thing that really made me realize that this just isn't it is my program had a job search last year. The hiring committee invited their top three folks -- all of whom were postdocs at R1 universities who each individually had more published papers at that stage of their career than many of the faculty in the department have had their entire careers. The candidates also had no teaching experience to speak of. in short, my program like many programs prepares its students for a very specific position with a set of experiences/opportunities that wouldn't even get them on the shortlist. Put another way, if I had my same accomplishments from a similar university and applied to my current university for a prof job, I wouldn't get a second look.
I wanted to be a professor because I was good at the teaching/research/service parts. I think I would have been a good one, but that job wouldn't be good for me. In the best case scenario, I'd have been overworked and underpaid while struggling to buy a home or raise a family -- all while dealing with the inanity of intra- and inter-departmental politics over petty matters.
Since deciding to leave academia, searching for consulting, government, or industry jobs has been eye opening. I have a lot of really good skills and experiences, just not the right numbekind that merit a reasonable salary. I'm in my 30s and feel like I've wasted years of my life.

2023.03.30 20:21 WTFI5THIS Dennis, Eddie, Marcus, Olivia, Nate, and Seth
"Out of all the kids in Richmond High School, the nicest of my students are the six that sit in the back table of the cafeteria. I'm sure they'll lead the world someday!
Dennis is a good kid; he'd never hurt anyone! Eddie is odd, but he sure is smart! Marcus is the most versatile teen in school! Olivia is shy, but sweet and athletic! Nate is kind of quiet. I don't know him well. Seth is also quiet, but he talks to me a lot!
These six are never late to class, they all have several friends in the school, and they even helped the valedictorian, Lou Cifur, get to where she is today! I'm not sure what they plan to do in the future, but it's most likel....."
The principals letter had more to say, but it was covered in his blood. Most of the writing is ineligible, but the note on the back had more to say.
"HEY, LISTEN UP. Who ever reads this letter should know that this school is the reason the apocalypse occurred. Lucifer has returned, and we MADE it happen. My name is Oscar Fitch, I was a repairman for Richmond High, and I'm the only one who knew what was happening. It all started when a kid named Lou came to the school. He proved smart, and made friends with every single student. How is that even possible? He had some other kids arrive after him. They were all nice and gifted. There names are listed below:
Dennis Delang Eddie Fiddle Marcus Hill Olivia Jenson Nate Snow Seth Williamson
I always thought they were the best of the best; role model students, but I heard them plotting. The end of days. Hells invasion of earth. I tried to tell people, but you HAVE NO IDEA HOW CRAZY IT SOUNDED! Those DEMONS would never be caught! The day after graduation, I saw the TV as the ground shook. A sinkhole opened up right under Lou's home. It swallowed most of Richmond, but not the school, nor my house. I can't believe I survived, but not our principal. His body is next to me as I write this.
Why am I here? GOD? WHERE ARE YOU? PLEASE HELP ME NOW!
God? Are you there? Its me, Oscar. The demons have risen. Its time for you to fight back. God?
Why did I pray to God? He's dead. Why did I pray to God? He's never gonna show. Why did God not show? Are we not worth it anymore? God?
Today I end this apocalypse. Sadly, I can only end it for me. To who reads this, if anyone. Where is your god when you need him? I don't see him, but if he shows up late, I'm sure he won't care about me or the bullet in my brain. Goodbye, 'savior'. Goodbye forgotten world".
The letter has ended, and so has Oscar's life.
