    [–] My boyfriend [27m] was having trouble committing to Valentine's day plans, I [22f] went to hang out with my friends [22f 21f 21f], and now he's upset with me. Admiral_Benguin 1 points ago in relationships

    As you can see in the op, she didn't originally mention that those plans were for Thursday. She just assumed bf knew, and was confused when bf thought she was talking about her regular hangout on Fri.

    From. The bf's point of view, it's very much a blow off

    Where is the personal insult? Nothing was said about you, but the person you're replying to told you to look at it from a perspective that isn't yours.

    Some people think everything revolves around them, sheesh.

    To always be on call for his convenience would be absolutely weird, granted,

    But we're talking specifically about valentine's, which I think only comes around once a year, usually.

    If my partner had an unpredictable schedule, then on that one day, I'd still leave my other plans aside and wait for them, even if it was just an hour before dinner, because, yknow, the point of the day is to love. Especially if I could hang out with my other friends the next day.

    This is the equivalent of spending your mother's birthday with your boyfriend instead because 3 days before her birthday she said she's not sure what time she'll be able to make dinner after work, so you assumed she wouldn't make dinner at all and decided to go for a movie with the guy instead.

    And to the people talking about making reservations, you obviously can not make a reservation if you don't even know when you're getting off work. You could try your luck at getting to a restaurant, or have a cozy dinner at home

    The dinner isn't the point, it's the time spent with your partner.

    You do realise that that's far worse, right?

    [–] Insects could vanish within a century at current rate of decline, says global review Admiral_Benguin 244 points ago in science

    The article was written some time ago, but it is slated for release in the April volume of that magazine as well.

    It's already out, but it's going to be out again soon.

    [–] The Sims 4, Halo Master Chief Collection Free With Gold This Weekend Admiral_Benguin 2 points ago in xboxone

    Nope, you can choose what parts of mcc to download once the base menu is downloaded. You can even do crazy stuff like only install h2a campaign and h3 multiplayer for example

    [–] If it takes 2100 Glory for Luna and 5400 for NF Admiral_Benguin 3 points ago in DestinyTheGame

    You realise KD means nothing at all when at a higher level right? Your KD could be 2.0 when at 1000 glory but 1.4KD at 2000 glory is far more impressive, because the quality of the kills is better. Also, objective-based gameplay pretty much confirms that KD is a useless metric after some point.

    Just because you kill a bunch of noobs and ignore objectives for a high KD doesn't make you a good player.

    [–] Facebook knowingly duped game-playing kids and their parents out of money Admiral_Benguin 66 points ago in Games

    Friendly fraud is actually a very widely used term that is committed by someone close to the victim, either intentionally or unintentionally. It's not a term Facebook coined.

    [–] AIA launches Singapore’s first-ever insurance policy that covers mental illnesses Admiral_Benguin 1 points ago in singapore

    The plan is a rider that is added on to other plans, so typically for the most coverage you would add the rider onto pre-birth life insurance, allowing for maximum coverage

    [–] Day 1,287 of the US Gov shutdown Admiral_Benguin 0 points ago in gaming

    I said experience. And I should probably clarify my wording:

    Forsaken is widely considered best destiny has ever been, and it is my opinion that it was the best mmo experience of last year. I mean, the only thing else that came out last year that was big was bfa. And we all know how that went. Also, betrayal in poe I guess but that came out so late it's honestly more like a 2019 release

    [–] Day 1,287 of the US Gov shutdown Admiral_Benguin 3 points ago in gaming

    Yup. The thing is that while destiny 1 was a lot of fun, a lot of people forget it had its fair share of issues. Horrible subclass meta where some classes were only good in pvp/e or some not at all anywhere, really bad special amma issues, and a lot of qol issues.

    Forsaken has so much weekly content, an ever progressing and meaningful story, an excellent weapon system, 9 new subclass trees that are all incredibly fun and well balanced, and a host of qol improvements.

    The only D1 experience that's comparable is probably age of triumph.

    Then that's your opinion, but it doesn't mean the game is trash. Forsaken was pretty much unanimously agreed on as the best destiny has ever been, and the best mmo (or quasi mmo I guess) experience of last year

    [–] Day 1,287 of the US Gov shutdown Admiral_Benguin 43 points ago in gaming

    It works in destiny, though, because destiny is more into the realm of fantasy, and it makes sense for hive knights and wizards to be able to take a lot more damage, let alone demigods and robots, and energy shielded teleporting aliens and such
