    [–] PS4 Users Can Change Their Name! greatwhitepeaches 6 points ago in playstation

    They actually have a list of games they've tested in the article. DS2, DS3, and BB had some minor issues but weren't on the list of games where people lost progress or something more major like that.

    [–] Had to bust it out for today's Monday morning round greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in golf

    $80 for most. Some of the nicer ones were $120 I believe. I went last year and to Drive, Chip, and Putt yesterday.

    [–] Georgia House passes "heartbeat" abortion ban greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in Atlanta

    Let me start by saying I'm not for this bill. However, it does include exceptions for cases of incest, rape, and when a mother's health is at risk. Just a friendly fyi!

    [–] Streaming games greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in falcons

    Where do you live? If you're local, PS Vue, YouTube TV, and Sling are all good options that I've used. Sling lacks other local channels for ATL (they only have Fox last I checked) so since there are usually some Falcons games on CBS, NBC, etc., I'd opt for PS Vue or YouTube TV. Or get an antenna to supplement Sling. PS Vue also has NFL Network as an option which is why I have it.

    If you're not local, it'd be a package through NFL Sunday Ticket (if you're eligible) which is kinda pricey, or you can use a streaming subreddit like r/nflstreams

    Edit: Sling, YouTube TV, and PS Vue carry the Fox regional networks (e.g. Fox Sports South) for Braves, Hawks, etc.

    [–] We need to start a supporters section at Braves games. We should be rowdy and proud at sun trust too. greatwhitepeaches 9 points ago in Braves

    I'm all for more support for the Bravos, but I'm not sure this would work (assuming the vision is to have a section similar to ATL United's). Baseball is just a different atmosphere. It's slower paced. People prefer to sit. You bring in a ton of flags and you'll just tick people off. So it would have to molded into a baseball specific image, if that makes sense.

    [–] Actual game attendance in The Benz is worse than we thought. "It's just marketing" but it also fudges the economic impact claimed to justify the build. greatwhitepeaches 3 points ago in falcons

    You mean for the upcoming season? I was referencing when I was looking during the last couple years. And I was including fees too. Cheapest I could ever find before fees were in the high 80s on StubHub and on ticket exchange. Glad they're coming down some though.

    [–] 2020 3* QB Tucker Gleason commits to Georgia Tech greatwhitepeaches 5 points ago in CFB

    Sean Renfree would be my guess for last pro style commit. Withdrew commitment in '08 after we hired CPJ.

    [–] [Jim Bowden] According to multiple GMs Craig Kimbrel asking price has still not come down and sources close to Kimbrel think he will consider sitting out the year if he doesn’t get close to his perceived value. greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in Braves

    Um I used that word twice? And it's pretty safe to assume Pittsburgh wasn't gonna offer a 1 year deal worth more than the value of the franchise tag. That would make no financial sense for them. If they were willing to pay him RB/WR money, it'd have to come on a multi-year contract. It's also fact that multiple teams have made Kimbrel muti-year offers. Those offers just aren't for the length/total value that he's apparently after.

    Right, which presumably would've came in the form of a muti-year deal. That's what I meant when I said it wasn't just about the money. He's playing a physical sport at position that takes a beating, so if he's gonna put his body on the line then he's gonna want more than contracts that last 1 year at a time (e.g. franchise tags). He wants something to secure his future with. Sitting out disincentived Pittsburgh from tagging him again, allowing him to seek that multi-year deal in FA.

    Kimbrel presumably has received several muti-year deals and he may go play wherever he so chooses. Sitting out is of no benefit to him, because his contract offers will only get worse as he stays away from the game/gets older. That's why I said it wasn't quite an apples to apples thing. It made some sense for Bell to sit. For Kimbrel it makes none.

    Bell also wanted out of Pittsburgh and did this to protest the use of the franchise tag and how some teams can abuse it without having to commit to long term deals (see Washington and Kirk Cousins), so it's not really an apples to apples comparison because it wasn't just about money for Lev. Kimbrel seems to just want more money/years period.

    [–] Completely new to Bow. and hunting. Looking for advice on how to get started greatwhitepeaches 15 points ago in bowhunting

    I'd second this and just add as some friendly advice, you might should tap the brakes u/NormalMacdonald with the "anyone can take an animal with a gun" attitude. Especially since you've never been hunting before. I hunt both archery and firearm seasons for various game, and while archery presents its own unique challenges, using any weapon (rifles, muzzleloaders, bows, etc.) to take an animal isn't a cakewalk. I'd get some experience before assuming any type of hunting will be a walk in the park.

    [–] Christian Redditors, what part of the Bible do you think is most often misquoted or misunderstood? greatwhitepeaches 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Is the insinuation that because I choose to be a Christian, I lack basic critical thinking skills?

    And I suppose that sentence was worded poorly. I didn't mean for that to read that I hope you yourself find worth and faith (that definitely sounds preachy/condescending), I meant that there are people out there that do read the Bible and they find worth and faith through reading it, and my hope would be that your interactions with them would be good ones.

    I'm sorry you've seen people use religion to justify doing bad things. I mean, speaking of groups like Westboro, it kills me to see them contort and twist scriptures in such an exaggerated way so they can justify their hatefulness. And then of course they're the ones getting all the media attention, not the unassuming Christians trying to do the things we're taught to do. But those that try and justify hate or bigotry or the like should be the outliers. And all I can do is hope that people don't let their observations of the outliers form their views of an entire religious group.

    [–] Can anyone help a foreign dude pick a CFB team to support? greatwhitepeaches 2 points ago in CFB

    Do you have a moment to talk about our Lord and Savior Geosus Collins?

    [–] Christian Redditors, what part of the Bible do you think is most often misquoted or misunderstood? greatwhitepeaches 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I think "completely open to interpretation" is an exaggeration. And if the Christians you've interacted with in your life are like those you've described in the second paragraph, I'm sorry because that's not how it's supposed to work. Christianity is not a "choose your own adventure" type of path.

    I don't think the existence of many denominations points to a situation where everyone just interprets scripture how they want. If you research, you'll find that denominations typically observe the finer points of Christianity in different ways, but the central tenets of faith remain steadfast throughout the denominations. Pointing to extremist groups like Westboro is a bit like pointing to ISIL as a way to invalidate the Koran. It's a problem with the people, not the text, and they're a fantastically small subset not representative of the large whole.

    And your statement that "of course, it's nothing more than fiction." means that most likely nothing I say will change your mind, but if you have the opportunity, I'd encourage you to spend some time with some people around you that do read the Bible and find worth and faith through it. I hope somewhere down the road you'll be pleasantly surprised with the kind of people you interact with.

    Edit: I hope I don't come off as snarky or condescending in any way, I say what I say in earnestness.

    [–] Christian Redditors, what part of the Bible do you think is most often misquoted or misunderstood? greatwhitepeaches 2 points ago in AskReddit

    For some things I agree, but a lot of Old Testament scripture is taken out of context. People pluck a random verse out and think it's a literal command for modern Christians to follow, without paying attention to the historical or societal context in which it was written and translated. It's not so much us picking and choosing what to believe, it's understanding how each individual text/work that makes up the Old Testament applies today and how relevant it really is.

    For example, you can find parts of the Old Testament that endorse an "eye for an eye" system of justice. But Jesus comes and in the New Testament he says that's not the way we're gonna do things anymore. So someone could pluck a verse out of Leviticus and ask "hey Christian why aren't you doing this 'eye for an eye' thing? Why are you picking and choosing what to follow?" and not understand the bigger picture of why we don't follow that today.

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? greatwhitepeaches 16 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Ah thanks. I grew up in the rural south so believe you and me I don't need much of an intro to what I see would be referred to as the evangelical denominations (mostly Baptist as you may expect). That's my frame of reference for the most part. The denominational churches that would be considered mainline are few and far between in rural Georgia.

    Edit: a word

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? greatwhitepeaches 23 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    You're gonna have to define what you mean by mainline Protestant because I'm in agreement with u/sleepdepriv3d in that that's definitely not the consensus agreement amongst Protestant churches (accepting same-sex marriage)
