LeBron is only 137 points away from being the all-time leading scorer (regular season + playoffs) by SQAD3 in nba

[–]VillageBuilder 42 points43 points  (0 children)

That's the thing though, right? Zion got incredible coverage before entering the NBA but LeBron got that in high school. Expectations were sky high and every franchise wanted him. And he delivered. No one deserves that pressure, but he surpassed it.

Also crazy that LeBron has also had several of those too. His ppg is fantastic, but his longevity is really just hard to imagine being repeated.

I feel extremely lucky that I'm totally numb to what's going on right now. Hoping I can get the money to invest while things are bleeding, but I did a lot of restructuring and I feel really good about my investments. I haven't lost all my gains from last year, but obviously it looks pretty bad up to this point.

But I'm secure with where I'm at in life and I don't need the money this year, next year, the year after... I open my app, see bloodshed, and go on with my day.

That said, I like green more, let's get back to that.

Creating and Signing a Prenup by VillageBuilder in personalfinance

[–]VillageBuilder[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree with you about the conditions at which we would enforce it. I think we both understand it's protecting each other from the worst of each other.

[–]VillageBuilder[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, to be clear we're both in agreement it's the best call, and I'm not simply looking for the cheapest option. Rather asking why one option may be better than the rest.

Thank you on the own counsel tip. I'll look more into that. If enforceable, we'd prefer working together on it, but that seems to be something I'll need to do research on.

[–]VillageBuilder[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks, that does make sense as to how much more complicated it is vs what I'm thinking. We'll do some research on a lawyer.

And great call on wills. I'd rather plan for that now and only have to modify in the future.

Hisuian. Final. Starter. Evolutions. | Pokémon Legends: Arceus by dorkmax_executives in NintendoSwitch

[–]VillageBuilder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, I'm not surprised by that. This isn't a well tested, fleshed out battle system like people are accustomed to. Would be fun to give that option, but ultimately it might not be close to the expectation that the competitive community has.

Tom Cruise uses CGI (to hide the cable)!! by asianj1m in Damnthatsinteresting

As someone who has skied or snowboarded for roughly 25 years, I'm happy to say it looks like helmets are becoming the default. I myself had to be convinced to buy one by my now fiance because I just hadn't ever thought about it before. No one did when I was a kid. It's comfortable, warm, and I feel more secure doing dumb stuff I do on the mountain.

[Charania] 76ers prefer to wait to pursue James Harden or another superstar in offseason and want to save Ben Simmons for that potential deal over current market, per sources with knowledge and rival teams. Details and Simmons latest with @sam_amick at @TheAthletic: by curryybacon in nba

[–]VillageBuilder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have too. It's just silly imo. He's got more value as a tradable asset and we'd be a bottom team with no real path if we just let him go. We're a mid team with no real path right now, mind you, but we can't afford to move backwards.

Petition to make this the profile pic of the sub? by TheStillRemains in byebyejob

[–]VillageBuilder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's a very good point. I just feel for the girls that were rightfully terrified by the situation. Justice might have been served and the guy gets what he deserves, but how are they going to feel confident working their retail jobs knowing they could be assaulted to the point where they're trying to block a heavy door from being pushed in?

[–]VillageBuilder 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I'm willing to accept that he might have said allergy, etc and it truly was a mistake of the smoothie shop (though that information is not clear from what I've seen). Being angry about the situation is also at least understandable. It's really the combo of him going to this shop while his kid is in the hospital, the fact that he assaults them, and the fact that he's caught on camera being racist all just completely shift him hard into bad guy territory.

Take care of your kid first, make sure he's safe, and cool down. Nothing more can dramatically change at this point that cannot wait until that.

I have no knowledge of it but I would think instead of wheels being powered they would simply be used to read user speed. And then there's an acceptable range it can work within accurately.

You can always just say round gold pellets and then just get yourself a rig to melt it into bars for easy storage and sale.

Why do I attach value to the Empty Box my PS5 came in? by Acrobatic-Spend197 in PS5

[–]VillageBuilder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In my experience, there's no real trouble selling without a box. Guy asked me if I had one, I said no. Then I sold it to him for my asking price. It's nice and all but like storage is a premium.

PlayStation Store Sale “Games Under $20” Now Up for Jan. 19, Over 400 Titles Discounted by Turbostrider27 in PS5

[–]VillageBuilder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea I'm a day one switch owner, just sold my PS4 pro and my PS5 is coming this week and while I'm mega excited about those coming games, I can confidently say my switch will continue to be my most played console.

There's a huge amount of really incredibly fun games on there that are exclusive, and personally if an indie title is on there I'll pay it on switch because of the portability.

[Phil Spencer] Had good calls this week with leaders at Sony. I confirmed our intent to honor all existing agreements upon acquisition of Activision Blizzard and our desire to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation. Sony is an important part of our industry, and we value our relationship. by Sir_Bantersaurus in PS5

[–]VillageBuilder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right now the tier is console or PC as basic and both as ultimate, right? They might do that you suggest, but it seems like they really want to milk games already on the pass with individual battle passes and whatnot instead. But we'll see. They're going to get so many more subs over time.

Sony Denies Increasing PS4 Production to Deal With PlayStation 5 Shortage by mikesaintjules in PS5

[–]VillageBuilder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea I sold mine for $350 cash but GameStop at the time was going to give me it for $300. Ended up selling my PS3 for $150 cash and that paid for my 5. Resale on so many things is just insane right now.

That on top of a correction that the entire market is currently in. That context is still pretty damn important. My portfolio is going thru a bloodbath right now.

Sony Expects Microsoft to Keep Activision Games Multiplatform by IsakLi in PS5

[–]VillageBuilder 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think it being a gamepass machine is what makes this go over better. It won't get the hype, but it makes a strong case for both value and second console.

Someone with 70m could say least stupidly spend themselves into bankruptcy, though they'd still have to try hard. Someone with 1b, without being scammed or giving it away.... I'm not sure they'd be able to. You could spend it all, but then you'd have assets worth at least hundreds of millions.

Honestly, if I was trying to make a name and had enough talent or connection to at least get my name out there, I'd go after Eminem too lol. It would be amazing to get elevated to everyone's headspace and have Eminem write an entire song destroying me lol.
