2022.01.23 20:58 XLAK76 Hypothetically Speaking...
Let's imagine a scenario: education becomes free in America. The government pays your expenses [electric, water, food, rent] until you complete your training and have worked long enough to receive your very first paycheck in your new role. This is completely free. You won't be taxed for it nor ever pay in any way, shape or form.
This can be anything you want. In fact, you can pick 2 areas. One of them has to be something the economy needs and the minor could be anything you've dreamed of. Example: if you really want to paint or be a musician, the government would pay for you to learn that long as you major in 1 STEM field. You can pursue your creativity while also having a failsafe like being an engineer or something.
In this scenario, would you still elect to do nothing all day, every day?
I'm genuinely curious because the last time I heard, many people have dreams inside them that they were forced by circumstance to give up on, effectively creating the situation that led to this sub being a reality.
So what would you do? Is it working as a concept or is it being forced to work that you have a problem with?
I'll go first: I have multiple interests but among the top things i want to do is being a sort of cyber crusader. If you've ever played the Watch_Dogs video games, I'd want those kind of knowledge/skills and use that kind of ability to fight corrupted businesses. If you've ever seen Burn Notice [one of my favorite series on TV] I'd be like Michael Weston who helps ordinary people using his CIA skills only with hacking being the main type of offensive tactic.
So in short: Burn Notice meets Watch_Dogs meets Criminal Minds.
If the government paid for it, I'd have no problem working. For me, it's being forced to work that has me burned out.
Just starting a conversation. Hope everybody is doing well.

2022.01.23 20:58 udidbfx8 Do I have the right to feel livid with my brother?
Im 28. Hes 25. Of that even matters. Anyways, 4 years ago my brother and I bought a house with our trust fund. I recently sold him my half and we agreed he would pay me $400 a month for 15 years. After we made the agreement, he said that hes not going to pay me unless I get a job. Im unemployed right now and live with my brother. Hes afraid im going to sit on my but and do nothing if he continues to pay me. I agreed with it just because I didn't want to argue with him or take him to court.
So? My trucks check engine light is flashing. I took it to autozone to get scanned. Its one of 2 things. Either its the ignition coild or its the spark plugs. I dont think its the spark plug because i just had them changed. My truck is old and I'm sure its going to keep giving my problems so I was gonna trade it in at the dealer ship and buy another car. My brother hasn't payed me for the last 4 months because I dont have a job (I was waiting for vocational rehabilitation) so I was gonna ask him to pay me for the 4 months so I could buy a new car.
My mom was talking to him and she brought this up. About him giving my money to buy a new car. He said no. It makes me furious because its my money and it's none of his business what I do with it. I feel like breaking something. Is my anger justified?

This sub has become a shitty place to be part of because of 3 or 4 morons who think that they are funny by being attention whores and making severals non-sense shitposts even nobody cares. I kno we have to entertain this sub until scar post on insta or until he drops, but don't make this annoying for everyone. I'm not complaining, jus saying what I see.
(You'll usually see them by putting "💀" at the end of their sentences or by leaking your address if you express an opinion that they don't agree with)
Have a great day

Tried some of the ideal wire armour tape and am not a fan, doesn’t seem to be as flexible as supper 33 and doesn’t tear as easy. I will stick with 33. Any one else try it?

CLG 1-1 C9
CLG manage to force a third game decider! Honestly pretty good game from them, Contractz still showing that Viego is strong and Jenkins popping off on Gwen. Really impressive team fighting overall from CLG
Who's going to take out Game 3?
