    [–] Someone helped Albedo sonofaresiii 7 points ago in gaming

    We can pencil you in for the second week of March, if you're ready to commit now with a deposit. Otherwise we recommend you check again next fall.

    [–] What’s the dumbest thing your significant other has said or done? sonofaresiii 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Not a SO, but one time while on a road trip my mom absolutely refused to eat at an IHOP. She claimed they were all dirty and we shouldn't eat there.

    She said if we want pancakes, we should instead find an international house of pancakes, because they were always clean and friendly.

    We've never let her live it down. It's been over twenty years.

    [–] Don't tell me you were never tempted to do this. Now you know WCGW. sonofaresiii 79 points ago in Whatcouldgowrong

    I only showed up for the mallrats references

    You see em a lot less these days, but they're not dead yet

    [–] I rejected 12 offers from major publishers to make my first game DARQ the way I dreamed it to be. They told me "you can't make it without us" and wanted up to 80% cut & IP. sonofaresiii 1 points ago in gaming

    I can't speak for game development specifically, but I can say for pretty much any project that you're mostly putting together entirely by yourself

    There are a lot of things that need doing that's just rote steady work. Takes very little mental capacity, you just have to physically put in the hours to get it done.

    So maybe 100/week is an exaggeration... Maybe not.

    [–] A lady gave this to my dad for free sonofaresiii 70 points ago in Marvel

    Well... Is that really what it'd go for though? That's what the guy listed it as but I have a hard time believing anyone would pay more than a couple hundred, tops.

    [–] Final Fantasy IX Switch Is The Same Version As PC And Mobile, Bugs And All sonofaresiii 1 points ago in Games

    I never played the originals, so I couldn't say

    but from the reviews I've read, the android ports actually got worse

    [–] An Open Letter to Game Developers from America's Largest Labor Organization sonofaresiii 5 points ago in Games

    to those who don't "pay their dues".

    Honest question, what do you mean by this? Because if you mean literally pay your dues, doesn't it make sense for unions to be exclusionary to these people? Unions require upkeep, and require dues to pay for it. Makes sense to me, so long as the dues are reasonable of course.

    But since you put it in quotes, I'm thinking you maybe meant something else?

    [–] AITA for firing employee of 20+ years for calling my niece "Princess" sonofaresiii 23 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I have had no one else complain to me about Ally.

    Is it possible they picked up on the fact that you have an attitude where any negative comments towards her are unwelcome and may be met with an immediate firing?

    I mean, I don't know what your other employees did or didn't pick up on, or what kind of attitude you might have presented

    but if they did somehow get the idea that negative comments towards ally would be met with a swift firing

    turns out, they'd be right.

    [–] Seems reasonable sonofaresiii 20 points ago in facepalm

    It looks like meatboy art style.

    It would be so rad if this was a meatboy sequel.

    e: it appears to have nothing to do with meatboy. ah well.

    e2: oh shit meatboy is getting a sequel though

    [–] I (23M) want to jokingly/fake adopt my bestfriend (25M) due to a bizarre inside joke. Need advice on documentation and where to find it adoption papers. sonofaresiii 2 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Yeah, I remember hearing about it back in the day because gay people would use it when gay marriage was illegal, so they could still get hospital rights and stuff. Basically all the benefits of being family for legal purposes since they couldn't get married.

    [–] WH press secretary Sarah Sanders interviewed by special counsel's office sonofaresiii 10 points ago in politics

    I dunno, you think she believes it? I always got the feeling that she was proud of herself for having "outsmarted" the press with her lies

    Who clearly saw through every moment of it.

    [–] AOC Plan to Block Donald Trump Emergency Declaration on Border sonofaresiii 2 points ago in politics

    the recent spate of bad Marvel remakes

    Hang on, now you've gone too far.

    [–] AITA for not appreciating my boyfriend being a gentleman? sonofaresiii 5 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    when things come up like "oh, while you grab eggs, let me go grab something else on the list!!" He wont tell me what's on it, because he doesn't want me to help.

    Maybe I'm being alarmist, but-- even if he's not doing it intentionally/consciously-- it sure sounds like he's grooming you to be helpless and totally dependent on him, so he can exert power and control over you.

    That might be a bit extreme just from reading your post, but it's something to consider.

    You know when you do shit like that, you mock yourself more than anyone

    [–] President Trump Declares National Emergency at the Southern Border sonofaresiii 10 points ago in politics

    Yeah, but don't fall back on whataboutism too much. Sure, it points out their hypocrisy, but there are extremely valid points to be made right now about how Democrats are not being obstructionist, without having to prove that Republicans are

    [–] What’s the best way to conquer stage fright? sonofaresiii 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Go on stage and fail. You'll see how much it sucks, and also how much the world keeps spinning and no one cares that much.

    [–] Is locksmithing "future proof" sonofaresiii 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    In twenty years? Yeah there's probably still going to be a pretty solid demand. I don't think tech is moving fast enough to have cheap and reliable electronic locks widespread enough to end locksmithing in twenty years

    [–] CMV: Publicly funded tax incentives for any private business to build in a city should be outlawed sonofaresiii 7 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in changemyview

    It's estimated that amazon would have generated $20+ billion in taxes over the next couple decades

    Now, without getting into all the other reasons amazon's queens location may or may not have been a good idea, let's just look at that as a hypothetical example and pretend other factors don't exist, since that's all your view is concerning.

    The city is trading $3b for $20b. That ends up being a pretty good deal, right? Assuming that without spending that $3b, no other company would have taken its place.

    Offering incentives to attract companies can benefit both the city and the company. It's win/win for both, while the only "losers" are the other cities who didn't get the company.

    Obviously it's up to the city leaders to determine if the incentives are worthwhile, but it shouldn't be outright illegal. It can benefit both parties.

    E: and it's super important to note that the city didn't have $3 billion in a bank account that they were going to wire Amazon. They weren't giving them that money, they were giving them tax breaks equivalent to that. So they were choosing not to get money from Amazon... But without Amazon, they're STILL not getting that money (again, assuming there's no one waiting to take Amazon's place). So whether they have Amazon or not, there's no change (again, in this hypothetical that ignores other factors)

    [–] Why do people wear shoes in the house? sonofaresiii 22 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    I think it's cute that you think clean is a binary state.

    Might as well just throw out the toilet and shit all over my carpet because "it's really not" clean already, right?

    [–] When Trump builds the wall, could Mexico not just make a sand ramp on the other side? sonofaresiii 2 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    So given that most of America hates them, if we separate them from their families, starve them and beat the shit out of them

    And they could avoid ALL that by putting in the exact same amount of effort to just fix Mexico

    Why don't they do that?

    This is a stupid premise that you haven't thought through.
