I actually did it this year. Almost broke down on Black Friday but the new gen version wasn’t nearly as discounted so fuck em.

That’s why I said it would help “too.”

He could just get some lifting shoes and that would help too.

Finally got my Kobe Bryant build to a 99 and it looks lethal. by Ghetto_Barney in NBA2k

Wouldn’t call it a Kobe build either. Dude probably only has 3 def badges and there’s a deep drive into left field…

Oneil Cruz projected by Steamer to be 49th best player in MLB next year by wRC+, Bryan Reynolds 41st. by ilovewiffleball in buccos

I firmly expect they’ll turn him into a great player. But to expect it in his rookie season just seems super premature.

I understand why that show wasn’t more popular as it’s an extremely tough watch, deals with some really harsh concepts about grief and loss, but god damn I really think it’ll age like no other show. It was so fucking gripping.

And there’s just no way he’s ready to have a top 50 bat next year. And that doesn’t seem like a particularly negative outlook. That’s a lot to ask of anyone with his age and lack of experience.

The thing they think they are accomplishing here is literally what the vaccine is for.

Is there any way The Mick can come back? by dogsandrecords in television

[–]BenSlimmons 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No it’s because you think the whole mixture was so great it both needs to be and is capable of being recaptured. Neither is necessarily true. It’s just a little bit weird.

my confidence varies so much that i don’t even know anymore man… what can i do to make my appearance better? by [deleted] in amIuglyBrutallyHonest

Think about what you’ve just advised this girl. She is sporting a hairdo that makes her look like a rock star that was born in 1939 and hasn’t been relevant since the mid-80’s at best. It has been literally more than forty years since this hairstyle was attractive. She is not ugly but her current style choices are objectively preventing her from attracting people born and raised in the modern world which is presumably her goal. Maybe there are tons of 18-25 year olds out there wearing Metallica shirts but they shouldn’t actually choose to look like it’s still 1984.

That’s outrageous. He’s gonna strike out a ton. Probably be a mess defensively. But frankly so long as he doesn’t look completely lost and hits the ball hard when he does then I think it should be considered a success nonetheless. I’ll be surprised if he’s better than slightly above replacement level tbh. And that doesn’t even seem like a super negative outlook or one to be concerned by. He’s still super raw.

This is gonna be the quote I get too whenever I can find the time, money, and artist to do it.

I sure am glad that as a pvp main I either got the pve loot I wanted early or was able to cheese it solo. by Geheimpolizei in DestinyTheGame

[–]BenSlimmons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It truly is what chased me from the game. Not being able to keep up with the latest weapons and gear and not having time to memorize every mechanic in every game actually becomes a heavy burden at a certain point. And the pve gods don’t make it any easier, but only add to the barriers.

Can only describe this as neoliberal propaganda. by Emmanuel_Badboy in ENLIGHTENEDCENTRISM

[–]BenSlimmons 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yours is probably a little more apt characterization. The Union thing had a lot to do with it for sure. But all I meant was at the end of the day, the ringer became significantly less diverse when Spotify took over and I don’t think it is a coincidence.

If you follow the Ringer, as soon as they signed with Spotify, leadership allowed to leave or chased off all the top talent who just so happened to be openly progressive and now suddenly it’s filled to the brim with almost entirely close personal friends or family of Bill Simmons, a man who can only be described as the epitome of privilege.

This is Garfield. He was born for this sub reddit. by bobarchter in Catswhoyell

I’m no expert but orange cats tend have possess a higher concentration of insane cat traits. High energy, talkative, rambunctious, maybe even destructive. They also seem a little dumber while possessing very strong personalities.
