  1. @d-dave First off, you read fast as hell. Secondly, I don't think you'll have problems getting through the series, but there is a serious lull between books 6 and 10, apparently. Everyone who has read the series says so. I'll be interested to see if you make it. Apparently, the last three books (which are written by Sanderson after Jordan's death) are worth it though. Me personally, I've tried to read the series twice and I gave up during the middle of book 6 twice! I'm a pretty slow reader in that I don't dedicate much time. I really want to give it another shot, but it's a commitment for me and I'm afraid I'll just give up again.
  2. Then, take whatever you wouldn't need to survive for 6 months and invest. While I do have a "play money" investment account that I manage, I also use Fidelity's GO Robo Advisor to manage an account. I have a 401K through them, two Roth IRAs (one for my wife, one for me), a joint investment account, and my fun account. All but my fun account are ran by their Robo advisor. Under $10k in an account is free, $10-50k is $3/month, and anything over $50k is 0.35%/year. You'll get more return having most of your money in an investment account over what a savings account can offer.
  3. I have it pre-ordered, but can't play it until the 19th. I've heard it's a mess right now, but that doesn't surprise me and won't stop me from playing.
  4. I wouldn't say hard seltzer has fizzled out, just that the market is too saturated. I still know a lot of people that drink white claws or trullys.
  5. The gang’s getting back together! Gaming, for me, has been getting boring with the lack of releases. Can’t wait for this.
  6. The app you're looking for is TV Time. You mark what you've watched or are watching. It notifies you when a new season starts. You can browse for new shows. I'm not sure if it recommends based off what you've watched, but I've definitely found new shows using their search feature.
  7. I started and maybe got 25% of the way through. I'm not done playing, but I've definitely put it on the shelf for now. It's haaaardd.
  8. Always down for an exhibition game. Chaymbah on Xbox.
  9. Yeah, RTTS is getting a lot of hate on Reddit. I feel the same way but can't really be mad since this is my first time playing The Show (Xbox user) and I don't know how it was in year's past. I'm god awful at hitting and my pitching isn't much better. Come to think of it, neither is my fielding. Still tweaking a bunch of settings and playing around with all of the controls. I was playing my cousin last night and switch to analog throwing while using Pinpoint for pitching and my catcher kept throwing down to 2nd base because I was pointing forward on the stick at the wrong time. All that to say I'm definitely going to need to practice (and yes, I've definitely messed up a few DPs due to the button accuracy.) We're getting a 10-person tournament together and I'm probably going to get crushed. If we ever need an opening, I'll post here to see if you're interested.
  10. Anyone playing? I'm on Xbox so this will be the first time I've ever played the game; it's been way too long since I've played a baseball game. Pretty excited. If you're playing what controls are you using? I'm torn between all of the options. This is what I'm currently rocking: Pitching - analog Hitting - PCI / Zone Running - Default Fielding - Drifting ball Throwing - Button accuracy
  11. I'm so confused....is this a bot posting or something?
  12. That’s what I saw, too. He’s in surgery right now.
  13. I’m sort of stuck in the middle of season 4. Someone tell me to keep going.
  14. I’m just so mad about the final episode and not because it’s “not the way I would have wanted it” but because it doesn’t make sense and it feels like they just threw something together in the last 15 minutes to end the show. I haven’t been able to rewatch it since. Maybe in a couple of years.
  15. I do know the CEO of RobinHood has a House committee hearing on Feb. 18th. That’s a start, I guess. https://www.google.com/amp/s/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN2A13O2
  16. Might have to get it earlier than expected if cyberpunk gets delayed again.
  17. Was just about to post that. I don't really understand it though. I mean, maybe next year for backup purposes, but I think we're pretty set here.
  18. Four... count them again, FOUR home games in a row. Damn, I stayed on this sentence for like a minute trying to figure it out....I should have read the next sentence first.
  19. Good stuff, Jeremy. I really hope we can get back there within the next two years for TD's sake. That man has so much passion, it blows my mind. He deserves one before he goes out.
  20. I'll pie you, but I can't look at this today... I know within that article there are brilliant pictures, but I'm still in my depressed Monday. I'll look tomorrow.
  21. I had a birthday party at a Panthers game back around 2000. One of my friends knocked off my Panthers hat and it fell over the top of the stadium wall. I never found it :( On the way back home, we stopped at a Burger King where the lady working refused to give us ketchup saying they were out. My Mom, being Spanish, got pissed off and went inside to talk to a manger. At this point the lady working got really irate and had to be held back by another employee (she was really having a bad day). One of my friends started crying in the back seat because, well, he thought someone was going to shoot someone. In the end, corporate apologized to us by sending us a letter, a bunch of free coupons, and a Rugrats watch for all of the kids in attendance and the lady was fired. The purpose of me telling you this is that I need those field passes to see if I can find my hat that I lost that day.
  22. I didn't win the Jackpot last night, so free tickets would be nice.
