    [–] [OFFER] Video Games(s) $60.00 USD Value cztm89 0 points ago in GiftofGames

    I apologize, this was an error on my part. I mistook the game requested for the answer for the game that was wanting to be played.

    To be fair to the GoG community, I've made a second drawing and ensured the question was answered, as well as meeting the rest of the GoG community rules. The second winner was listed as a second edit.

    Again, my apologies for the error on my part.

    Yes. From what I can tell, it isn’t region locked.

    [–] Churchy Sister brainwashing my niece. cztm89 10 points ago in askgaybros

    Live by example. Show your niece (and sister) how happy and successful of a life you can live as two men married together. Be happy with your life (congratulations on the engagement, by the way! :) ), love each other, and be good people in general. That kind of positivity will bleed through, and make it harder to support their claims that it's "wrong".

    Over time, she will either come to accept you and your fiance, or she won't, but that's not something you, specifically, have any control over. Arguments and/or debates will only get you so far, and in most cases, isn't going to change any minds. Especially when it comes to "the law of God". Logic need not apply. Fighting that is a losing battle that will just frustrate you for years. (I know it has for me...)

    As for your niece... I know it's hard, but there's not a lot you can directly do about it. Just let her know that you love her, and if she ever wants to ask you questions, that you're there to answer her. Though she's young, she's her own person and will have a choice in how she develops. All you can do is be a positive influence for her.

    I agree with your sentiment about family and friends about love and agreement with your homosexuality, and if you don't want that kind of negativity in your life, don't have it. Definitely don't back down from that, but I wouldn't make a burning bridge ordeal out of it, that just goes to satisfy their religious ego and makes them feel like they were justified. Just move on with your life, quietly, and be happy!

    [–] [Discussion] Hardest boss fight in the entire series in your opinion? cztm89 21 points ago in KingdomHearts

    Vanitas Remnant from BBS for sure. That short health bar is the biggest middle finger of a boss fight I’ve ever experienced.

    This. Or, there are plenty of YouTube “movies” of the games with just the cutscenes.

    [–] Looking for help in Hot Springs AR area cztm89 3 points ago in Assistance

    Hey there! I live in Arkansas, about an hour away from Hot Springs.

    One of the best things about the Hot Springs area, and anywhere in the River Valley is the abundance of High-end antique stores and flea markets.

    Yes, there are definitely some trashy ones, but if they head to Conway and Greenbriar areas, there are some higher end ones that actually take care in picking out what goes in and out of their store. I’ve bought a lot of appliances and kitchenware that I was very happy with, at about 1/4 or 1/6 the price of what they’d find in a store. It’s been a while since I went to Hot Springs, so I can’t really attest to that area’s shopping scene, but I do recall a few handy places. (Best advice: if the place looks and smells like trash, it probably is...)

    There are also high end secondhand clothes shops if they are in need of that. Plato’s closet in Conway has netted me some very nice Lucky Jeans, Nice Button up Shirts, and high end brands for 5 bucks a pop, some with the original tags still on them. Again, not all places are equal, but they can likely use their best judgement.

    There’s also a lot of local crafters that make their own furniture and sell for reasonable prices. Look for the little mom and pop shops, and don’t be afraid to haggle! The worst they can say is no. I have some very nice furniture that I get compliments on that came on the cheap.

    Of course Facebook swap groups in most of the local areas in Arkansas, I’ve found, has some good offers on gently used appliances. (Though I recommend if they try that avenue, to agree to meet in a public place, there are some sketchy people out there!)

    As for salaries, YES, there is going to be a decline as compared to CT, but the cost of living in Arkansas is relatively cheap. Utilities and rent should be proportionally chalet as compared to what they are used to. I’d suggest getting a SAM’s club membership and buying essentials in bulk, there are crazy good deals in that store (and some crazy bad ones.. always compare the cost/unit against local grocers). State Income Tax is also very friendly on wallets as long as they’re withholding properly.

    Anyway, if they want to search for furniture and are willing to make a drive: I’d recommend:

    Something Special : Conway Junkinton: Conway Something Old Something New: Conway Through The Years: Greenbriar

    If they ever have any questions, have them pm me. Been in the state my whole life, and I’m pretty familiar with most areas.

    [–] Which movie/series/cartoon character awoke your attraction for the first time? cztm89 1 points ago in askgaybros

    Corso and Cale from Titan AE was the one I can most clearly remember. Marvel comic books were also a big clue for me.

    [–] Trouble working for straight guys? cztm89 5 points ago in askgaybros

    There’s culture clash everywhere you go. Race, religion, sexual orientation, generational, etc.

    I’ve only ever reported to straight men and women in my workforce, and I’ve never had much trouble working with them. Usually, if I have trouble connecting with them, it’s for some other reason.

    My current boss has a family of 6, is a good 20 years older than me, and she is a die hard marathon runner. Meanwhile, I’m single, younger, and a bookworm. We don’t connect on a personal level, mostly because we’re so different and in different phases in our lives. Still, she’s a good boss, 10/10 would recommend.

    My first job, I reported to an older man who grew up in the “hippie” era. Didn’t really mesh with him because he was way too laid back and didn’t care about deadlines, and that was such a clash with my own work ethic.

    So I wouldn’t immediately think it’s a straight/gay thing by default, but each situation is unique. You might ask yourself why you don’t click with them, excluding orientation from the table, and see if there is some other factor putting up a wall.

    [–] How much harder is life going to get? cztm89 19 points ago in AskMen

    Life is an accumulation of bad days, good days, and neutral days. There are days when everything will feel like the world's on your shoulders, and days when you'll smile so much you can't help yourself. There were many times in my teenage years when I genuinely wondered if life is worth living, to be chained to a desk or working a job to live. I'm about to hit 30, and I'm glad I've been around to see where life took me. My life is not perfect, by any means, but time and perspective make you appreciate life. Find joy when you can and take each day as they come, one day at a time.

    [–] How did you deal with a bad job performance review? cztm89 3 points ago in AskMen

    Does the criticism make sense to you?

    Are they items you think could genuinely improve yourself as an employee and help you as part of your career, or were they way out of left field and surprised you?

    [–] What career are you currently doing and what do you love/hate about it? cztm89 1 points ago in AskMen

    I'm a Cost Accountant for an Agricultural Firm.

    I love the numbers and logic of it all, (1+1 MUST equal 2).

    I hate that it's an industry that doesn't do much in the way of technical innovation. I was using DOS software for our A/P until about two years ago, which was upgraded to a software developed in the late 90s, with patchwork "upgrades". A lot of data management is manually driven, because the software isn't smart enough to calculate certain metrics on its own. Thank God for Excel is all I can say.

    [–] What is your take on representation of gay people in the media? cztm89 11 points ago in askgaybros

    I wish the representation was like it was in every other form of media for heterosexual characters. Where sexuality was not the only focus of the character, but rather just a part of their character.

    I want to know more about a character than just their sexual preference. I want to know their motivations, what drives them, what makes them tick, and why I should root for them.

    [–] whats the best way to deal with getting wasted at a work christmas do ? cztm89 7 points ago in AskMen

    In that case, probably watch yourself and your limit in the future. Can’t undo what is done, but as long as it’s not something done each work gathering, people are likely to forget in time.

    We’ve got one guy “Bob” at work that we intentionally warn the bartender about and set him a limit at work conferences. He continues to get drunk and make an ass of himself to other coworkers and our clients/vendors. Don’t be a bob.

    Meanwhile, our controller got hammered about 3 years back during a Christmas party, but nobody really remembers her doing that because it was such a rare occurrence, and all people ever talk about is Bob.

    [–] whats the best way to deal with getting wasted at a work christmas do ? cztm89 8 points ago in AskMen

    What exactly did you do while wasted? Just general inebriation or were some things said that shouldn’t have been said?
